Hi Kim,

Sorry to hear of your bad experiences.  My husband and I maintain an iris 
display garden in a public park and other volunteers maintain a large 
perennial border.  The park has a greenhouse open to the public and has bulb 
displays and annual plantings.  Sometimes bloom stalks are broken and seed 
pods we were saving are knocked off, but we haven't had plants stolen.  The 
reason is that the gardens are enclosed with a high fence and the gates are 
locked at night.
