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!

Interesting. It might work. It should clear your sinuses too. Keep us posted.
