How to Protect Your Plants from Voles


Voles are a huge garden pest, tunneling, eating and destroying plants. Here's a quick and simple tip for keeping voles from eating your plant's roots. Prepare a slightly larger hole, when planting perennials in the fall. Toss in a couple of daffodil bulbs. The bulbs will deter voles and you'll have the bonus of spring daffodils, next season. Plus, the perennial will cover up the yellowing daffodil foliage, after the show.
