I recently saw a product advertised to keep away squirrels - bags full of something smelly. Do you know of any plants that squirrels don't like the smell of? Thanks. Gail

Sometimes squirrels are deterred by red pepper flakes, but sometimes they are not. They don't seem to like daffodil bulbs so including them in your flower bed might be enough to keep them away. There are some nasty tasting repellants on the market that you may want to try: Ropel and Deer Away are two such products. Give them a try. Hope they work for you!
