How To Keep Squirrels From Plants

Question From: J. Smith - Royal Oak, Michigan, United States
Q: I have problems planting annuals or perrenials in pots around my yard as they get chewed up and dug up by squirrels. I have tried the cayan pepper sprinkled around the top edge of the pot but gradually they figure it out. I need to know if there are ANY plants that squirrels will stay away from, wither from odor or taste. Thank you, Jan Smith

A: Cactus works. PlantSkydd animal repellant granules sprinkled on the surface of the soil works me. Best And Happy Yardening, Nancy
