The Q&A Archives: Gophers

Question: What flowering plants and or vegetables can I plant in in my yard that the gophers won't eat? They really are pesky buggers.

Answer: Gophers tend to stay away from Euphorbia and Narcissus, Evening Primrose, geraniums, Vinca, roses, mint, thyme, coriander, parsley, and Four O' Clocks. I know it's a short list, but at least there are a few small plants here that you can try. Best wishes with your garden!
