What do you do to keep the deer from nibbling your plants?
A gal in our garden club has had a horrible time with her deer eating all her daylilies and a bunch of other perennials.
She has worked for years to try to find something that she could spray and would actually work.
This year she had the best luck ever and everything she sprayed was untouched by the deer but one hedgerow that she forgot to spray was totally eaten.
She passed out the recipe she is using .....raved about how cheap it was to make ......and for her... it works!
Organic Deer Repellant
1 cup milk
1 T. liquid detergent
1 to 2 T. cooking oil
2 T. oil of rosemary or concentrated mint juice
Beat egg, add other ingredients and strain into a 1 gal container. Add water to fill the container.
Spray once a week on the plants the deer like to eat.
Store unused repellent in the refrigerator.
I am going to try it this year but I am also thinking.....I always loose all my amamenies, some of my crocus, allium and smaller tulipbulbs over the winter.
What if I dipped my bulbs in it before I planted them?
Do you think the solution will destroy my bulbs?
