Newspaper Weeds Away:
Plant plants in the ground, work the nutrients in the soil. Next, wet newspapers, then put layers of newspaper around plants – overlapping as you go, lastly, cover the wet newspaper with mulch. Weeds will get through some garden plastic, but not through wet newspapers.
Keep Squirrels From Eating Garden Plants:
Sprinkle plants with cayenne pepper. Cayenne pepper doesn’t hurt plants and hungry squirrels won’t touch cayenne pepper!
