What plants do your critters love to eat?
Hi there. I live in a mostly wooded neighborhood and am in constant battle with voles, moles and chipmunks. In my experience, if a vole doesn't just eat a given plant's roots outright, one of my many moles or chipmunks will tunnel straight through them. I started planting most of my vulnerable or expensive plants in hardware cloth critter cages several years ago. Since then, I haven't lost any plants to critters.
The other day I was detailing this strategy to a neighbor, who is also a serious gardener, and a debate ensued about which plants were considered tasty to voles. We both agreed that moles and chipmunks will burrow through anything, but we had very conflicting opinions on vole-susceptible plants. I've based my critter cage usage for certain plants in my garden on info I've read online. Please take a moment and let me know which plants you've either found it necessary to protect, or, can let grow without worry.
