Had planted some sunflower seeds and the stems aare about a foot tall - no flowers yet. I just went outside and saw that something had bitten off the tops of ALL of them!!!!!!!! I guess there is nothing I can do - I certainly don't want to go building fences. Is there any flowers that might deter varmints from doing this?

Supposedly, marigolds are used to repel rabbits.
But I'm having similar problems with a much larger animal,
and, unfortunately it's not even close to being deer season yet. This year they have eaten beans, peas, pansies, delphiniums, sedum, cherries, and a number of other plants. Recently, I just spend more time early in the mornings and late evenings walking the yard as plant guard.
Since they are nocturnal, they will win.
