Is there any flowers that groundhogs won't eat?

    Garden pests tend to be put off by the heady aroma and texture of many flowering herbs. Scented geraniums, lavender, mint, beebalm, catmint, sage and oregano will keep groundhogs away while filling the landscape with decorative, delicate blooms and edible, fragrant foliage.

    Marigolds. Many animals and critters do not like Marigold. I'd say O'Leander, but they are poisonous to humans, dogs and cats too.

    Are they eating the roots or the flowers/plant? If it's roots, it's a mole or vole. Get a mole/vole deterrent at a nursery or garden center, and spread over the garden, then water in well. We have to replant part of our garden because of mole damage - but we're going to put a bit of the deterrent in the planting hole, when we replant - at the bottom - and keep our fingers crossed.

    Yup. Crown Imperials as it stinks (the bulb that is). Even deer will not eat the flowers.

    Yes. Artificial flowers.
