Would this be an effective way to get rid of gophers?
I lost about ⅔ of my in-ground plants to gophers, over the summer. I was thinking that if I was able to get some sort of chicken wire with small enough holes, I could lay the chicken wire into the hole I dig, and then put the plant in the ground over the chicken wire. The gophers would not be able
to chew through the main roots.
What do you think? If my idea doesn’t work, what will?
