Has anybody tried this?
From the Old House Gardens Gazette this morning in my email:
Protect Your Daylilies with Vick's Vapo-Rub
Got deer? Here's a tip from our friend Diana Bristol of Bloomingfields Farm, deep in the deer-infested wilds of Connecticut, who swears by it to protect her hundreds of hostas and daylilies: Put a little Vick's Vapo-Rub on your thumb and index finger and then touch bud or leaf with it here and there. Diana says touching the smallest buds on a stalk is especially effective because the Vapo-Rub will remain on them for a long time before they get big enough to bloom and drop.
Says hostas also....think I will go down thru the beds with a jar of Vicks and try it out as soon as they are up. It would be just too easy if it actually works!
