How can I keep the rabbbits from eating up the flowers in my garden? I've tried hot pepper flakes. How do you keep the squirles from digging up the plants?

I wish there were an easy answer to your question. Gardeners everywhere are experiencing the same problems and there simply is no one solution that works for everyone. You can try deterrents such as Ropel in your garden, or you can cover the entire garden or individual plants with birdnetting to keep them from digging and munching your plants. Not a very pretty solution but it might be temporary. Others have reported that once the critter cannot get to the plants they move on to greener pastures. Let's hope they do the same for you!
