pesky squirrels


pesky squirrels

I noticed hardly any flowers on this hellebore and on investigation most have been cut off and spread around the garden. This one is 20 yards away from the plant.

Sorry I clicked like I thought it was the flower just coming into flower.

How awful I have a squirrel come into my garden but it has never touched mine only a bowl full of crocus some years back. Can't you put some chicken wire around it or lots of sticks. I have watched sticking plastic forks upside down around plants deters some animals.

Sbg, I wonder why Squirrels would do that?

Shirley tulip I thought it would be slugs or snails as they will chew off the heads and the wind has blew them around the garden.

I've no idea but this is the first year they have done this. I did cut down the clematis and climbing rose near them and they might have protected them before.

Shirley they don't need a reason in my garden they are taking off Camellia flowers and dropping them half chewed on the ground.

Seaburngirl I know thorney roses over lapping fences deter cats so perhaps you cutting your climbing rosedown has made it easy access.

If the squirrel had hidden it better, might it have remained there and become a "surprise" next spring? I have squirrels who are actively helping me spread sunflowers and black walnut around the property! lol... 🐾😮🐾👍
