4666Re: [SCA-Herbalist] Squirrel troubles...
- Jun 6, 2005I 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)
