How do I keep gophers out of my new garden space ( and mounds showing up near my newly planted flower beds? Thank you! I'm working with a budget for a home garden so I don't have a big one. Patty

There are a couple things that you can do. They don't like peppermint, so you can put some peppermint oil on cotton balls by your flower beds. Or, plant peppermint plants close by. You can also mix up castor oil and soap and spray that around your flower beds. That will help repel them too.
