Will Gophers Eat Garlic Horseradish Turmeric Etc

Question From: M. Tampier - Los Gatos, California, United States
Q: will gophers eat garlic, horseradish, turmeric and alike?

A: Gophers are plant eaters and they feed on roots and bulbs as well as the tops of plants.we don't have them here in Michigan. I deal with deer who have learned to eat just about anything that is green - or red. This year they have gone after tomatoes. I suggest you contact your county extension to see what methods are available for eradication. Best And Happy Yardening, Nancy.
