I have major problems with gophers in my flower beds. What types of flowers don't gophers like? I've had pretty good luck with snapdragons but would like to plant something shorter. Any ideas?

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!
