Springtime tip: Recipe for deer-foiling success!
If deer are munching on your newly emerging buds and shoots, try this organic solution recommended by speaker Colleen Plimpton and vetted by Gardeners Michael & Petrea Poler:
In a blender, mix 2 eggs, 1/4 cup wilt proof , 1/4 cup extra, extra hot sauce, one cup water. Mix thoroughly and add mix to one gallon of water. Spray everywhere and often on the things deer love to munch.
