Fall Color from Fruit on Shrubs

Gardening in Georgia

Home-Made Deer Repellent

Rose, hydrangea, hosta, daylily... all of these plants and many more garden favorites are delicious to deer. While Walter makes no promises of permanent repelling, his home-made concoction would surely give a deer a stomach ache. Rotten eggs and hot sauce – yummy!
