Q.How Can I Keep My Flowers From Being Eaten?

Zone Reading, PA 19606 | Anonymous added on June 17, 2021 | Answered

I planted zinnias, marigolds and morning glories by a telephone/electrical pole twice. The first time it was only zinnias. The second time it was all of the above. Either bunnies or squirrels have taken away the plants. I was hoping that marigolds might discourage them but NO, those disappeared as well. Oddly, this is the only location where this is happening in the backyard. There are flowers in other areas. Suggestions? Is enclosing the area with chicken wire or something like that the only option? Help! Thanks.

That is very strange. Unfortunately, without seeing signs of the culprit, we could only guess.
