Re: CULT: New Year Disaster


On deer damage...

This fall when I planted out my new iris, I had to check
them almost daily due to deer chewing them down and often
pulling them right out of the ground.

I used my sister's solution:  Irish Spring soap, cut into
small chunks and placed closely around the rhizomes.  I
have seen no deer damage since then.  Apparently the strong
"fragrance" is unpleasant enough to keep them from nosing
around.  And the fragrance lasts and lasts!
