Keeping Squirrels out of Freshly Planted Pots

By tinpins

The squirrels don't dig in freshly planted pots and planters if you place large flat stones in between the new plants. Once the plants are established and are starting to grow, the stones can be removed.

I put wire over my containers, it doesn't stop them but it slows them down....

That's great for smaller plantings ... we use wire in the garden too.

I like the stones idea and will use that for my pots - i was doing that for all my houseplants that the kitties had access to .. for larger beds I put chicken wire on top and let the plants grow through it .. works very well for me.

"The Universe speaks in many languages, but only one voice. It speaks in the language of hope; It speaks in the language of trust; It speaks in the language of strength, and the language of compassion. It is the language of the heart and the language of the soul. But always, it is the same voice. It is the voice of our ancestors, speaking through us, And the voice of our inheritors, waiting to be born. It is the small, still voice that says: We are one. No matter the blood; No matter the skin; No matter the world; No matter the star; We are one. No matter the pain; No matter the darkness; No matter the loss; No matter the fear; We are one. Here, gathered together in common cause. we agree to recognize this singular truth, and this singular rule: That we must be kind to one another, because each voice enriches us and ennobles us, and each voice lost diminishes us. We are the voice of the Universe, the soul of creation, the fire that will light the way to a better future. We are one."
