    Plants flowers that squirrels don't like because of either their taste or their smell.
    These flowers include alliums, crocus (tomasinianus variety), lilies, marigolds, hyacinth, daffodils and, from personal experience, impatiens, geraniums, columbine, and the squirrels seem to leave my begonias alone though I have heard that they are not against eating them also.

    Not sure about birds, but for squirrels, rabbits and other digging small animals; spread coffee grounds where digging occurs and surrounding area. It has worked really well for us.

    you can spray bitters or hot pepper juice around the pots and lay some foil inside the pots to spray it on and I bet they will stop
