Squirrls are constantly digging up my perienels that I have just planted and leaving them to dye. How can I prevent this. Any sprays you can suggest.

I think the squirrels are just curious to see what you put in the ground. I would simply cover over the plants with birdnetting, tucking it around the plants and anchoring it down to the ground. Once the squirrels discover they cannot explore the soil they will move on to greener pastures. Later in the season you can remove the barriers.
