Sorry I don’t think I’ve had problems with snails or mice in my cyps. My problems are squirrels/chipmunks digging in the ground and pots, and slugs/snails on Hebenaria.

I had voles who did a good job on a clump of Cyp montanum - only once. Maybe cover the clump with a 1/4 inch wire mesh like one does with tulips.

I know. He's bringing me guttatum and Christian. The tibeticum I bought last fall is poking up through the soil now.
Tibeticum from Mrs Perner? I bought from her a tibeticum & a flavum (+ a dozen other things...). Both are coming up. I was a little worried they might not make but they did. Got luck with your guttatum - it might be a challenge. I've hadn't had much success. It seems winters aren't long enough and it's really too hot during summer.
