      I have container gardens at my apartment too and have fought off the infamous grey squirrels! And
      worse, I'm on the ground floor. They do not like Rosemary or Sage. I have planted both rosemary
      and sage each year for 5 years and since have not had a problem with them digging in my plants
      since. They are also said to not like marigolds. I haven't tested this plant yet. FYI...Chipmunks
      also do not like rosemary and sage. Now if I could find a way to keep the neighborhood children
      out of them... (sigh)
