squirrel control for plants

What can I do about squirrels stripping my potato vine, verbena and knockout roses. Is there something for full sun deck that they won't eat? Red pepper doesn't faze them!

Short of putting plants in cages which squirrels can't get into, you could spray them with a repellent. Either Messina Wildlife Stopper or Liquid Fence make products that can be sprayed on plants to keep squirrels away.
