Mike, I have squirrel problems at certain times of the year. I
was advised to use Cayenne Pepper around the plants and that did nothing. I went
to Costco and purchased some hot pepper flakes and scattered
around each plant. That worked. You may want to consider trying this and see if
this helps in your garden. I think the Cayenne pepper was too fine and washed
away with the rain into the soil. The hot pepper flakes stayed at ground level
and they have to walk on them to get to the plants and then they don't like the
stinging they get from the oils in the flakes. The flakes don't wash away
immediately and so the squirrels seem to remember. I will know this fall if this
needs to be repeated but so far so good. Hope it helps. The clematis you sent is
growing like mad but the lighter markings on the leaves seem to have
disappeared. No matter I look forward to its bloom either later in the season or
next year. Thank you again.

I know I have a squirrel problem. I just made
some chicken wire covers for my seedlings. I was having to replant them 4 or 5
times a day. Now Squirrels are one thing by why do I have to contend with
their Ghosts ( see picture) <G>
