Pansies- Pest Control

Q: Either rabbits or squirrels are uprooting my recently planted pansies. Is there anything I can do?

A: Try removing mulch around the plants and laying four-inch wide, two-foot long strips of chicken wire between your plants. Anchor the wire with “hatpins” made from wire clothes hangers. Recover the chicken wire with mulch. The animals will have a hard time digging anything up thereafter.
