How can I keep my dog from eating my flowers?

I bought a bunch of bulbs yesterday and am super excited, but then DH reminded me that our puppy eats the things we plant. She was able to jump the garden fence last year and eat the peas and beans(I don't think she'll be able to this year) and she tore up the corn, which was also behind a (shabby) fence. But the flowers won't have any fencing or anything else protecting them from her! Is there anything I can put on sprouts and flowers to make them taste horrible, but that won't hurt the flowers? Or any other ideas. I'd appreciate any suggestions.

I've already ruled out killing the dog - DH and the kids actually like her. (just kidding about that one! I love the pup too, I just want her to stop destroying my growing things!)

thanks!
