I grow a lot of things in containers, I'm beginning to feel "homey" already.

this is the first year i've done quite a few containers... I am really having an issue with squirrels. they are sleeping in one of my larger 'rail' containers and digging in the ones that have Caladiums. Uggg. All the impatiens were smashed....

any hints to keep these buggers out? I think it's the little red ones.

Wire to cover the container. I have to use wire to keep my chickens from scratching things up. Thumb of 2011-07-07/Ridesredmule/107ced
Even my bogs are not safe, so I use wire to keep them out!

I use grated irish spring soap in my containers and it does a great job of keeping the critters out!

What a good idea, Steven. I know I would stay away from anything with Irish Spring soap on it, but I didn't know it affected animals that way. Now if I could only find someone to grate it for me so that I wouldn't have to get near the stuff. Worst smell ever!

I agree one application of the stuff lasts a long time too unless you get torrential rains.

I just about spewed Dr. Pepper out my nose and all over the place.

Not a pretty picture, I know...

Zuzu- I couldn't agree more. There's a reason I make my own soap. yuck.

Yes, dead one, I recycled them into pots. I drilled little holes in bottom for drainage.
You like them??? I got one more to plant...
