does garlic repel animals?
I came across something in a garden magazine. It was something that was supposed to be concentrated garlic, in (or on) a spike. You are supposed to put these spikes around your vegetables to deter rabbits. Has anyone tried this?
We have a lot of rabbits around the area. They jump the wall and eat the tomatoes, apples, lots of ornamentals, and grass. We also have flocks of quail who jump over the wall and eat everything in sight. All the annuals I started were eaten, as well as many perennials and shrubs. Will they eat the garlic? Can I use garlic to deter them? I grew garlic chives last year. Between the rabbits and quail, they ate this down to the ground.
