Our backyard is quite woodsy. Over the last couple of years I have tried planting impatience but the squirrels dug up and ate the roots. This year I am trying marigolds but the flowers are being eaten. I'm not sure if it is squirrels or birds that are eating the marigolds.Any suggestions of an annual I can plant? Thanks.

I too have had squirrels eat on some flowers.What they didn't touch was my geraniums,lantanas,petunias and nicotinas.They did munch on my verbenas,nemesias,morning glories and peppers. I cannot grow marigolds,not because of the squirrels but because slugs strip them clean and fast. Good luck
