Product Details

If you've abandoned Tulips and Lilies because of subterranean varmints, the Bulb Cage represents an opportunity to enjoy these beauties again.

We adore Tulips and Lilies, in the garden and in the vase. Unfortunately, some gardeners can't share our enthusiasm, because voles or gophers feast on their bulbs. We’ve designed a cage that foils burrowing critters by surrounding bulbs in a fine wire mesh. Dig a hole to the required depth for the bulbs, set up the cage, place the bulbs, and backfill. The cage holds up to 5–6 Lily bulbs and from 9–24 Tulips (depending on how extravagant a display you desire). Exclusive.

  • Measures 12" square x 6" high
  • Made of galvanized heavy-gauge steel wire welded into a 1/2" mesh




The size of the plants we ship has been selected to reduce the shock of transplanting. For some, this means a large, bareroot crown. Others cannot travel bareroot or transplant best if grown in containers. We ship these perennials and annuals in 1 pint pots, except as noted. We must point out that many perennials will not bloom the first year after planting, but will the following year, amply rewarding your patience. We ship bulbs as dormant, bare bulbs, sometimes with some wood shavings or moss. Shrubs, Roses, vines, and other woody plants may be shipped bareroot or in pots. The size of the pot is noted in the quick facts for each item.


We ship our bulbs and plants at the right time for planting in your area, except as noted, with orders dispatched on a first-come, first-served basis by climate zone. We also ship a wide range of containers and planters, tools, supplies, fertilizers, garden wear, garden decor items, as well as indoor decorations like wreaths and dried bouquets when available. Estimated dates for shipping are indicated in the green Shipping Details box for each item. Please supply a street address for delivery. Kindly contact us with two weeks notice, if you'll be away at the expected time of delivery.


We guarantee to ship plants that are in prime condition for growing. If your order is damaged or fails to meet your expectations, we will cheerfully replace or refund it. Please contact our Customer Service Department at 1-800-503-9624 or email us at [email protected]. Please include your order number or customer number when contacting us.

Living in South Florida, zone 10, we don't bulb. But I would offer a suggestion that works for us in soFlo battling rodents. We spray a 2-drop to 1-gallon mixture of Peppermint essential oil and water. Seems to work on rodents and spiders. The spiders love to build webs under our roof soffits. Maybe it's worth a try to spray. Bulbs are so beautiful, we in soFlo envy those who have the ability to grow them.

Bulb Cages

I purchased 3 of these cages (definitely not at this price though) several years ago. After a couple years the bulbs grew bigger and then they got closer to the wiring. Of course you can’t tell that until its too late. Critters were able to reach enough of the bulb to do damage. Both from the sides and the bottom. The roots also grew through the wiring. So lost them all. I agree with other comment, These are difficult to bury (unless you have very deep loose soil) and murder to dig up after several years!

The cage works, but is not worth the trouble of planting.
