Re: Bulls horn acacia

Well, Bonnie, now I have my deer fence, I'm not going to worry about
it, but I did think about using a thorn hedge at one point.   What
stopped me was that to be effective, that hedge would have to be over
6' tall and that takes a while with any plant, plus the number of
plants I'd have needed and the lack of sun in much of the area.  

I would think that Jim's bulls horn would stop an elephant if it were
large enough; never seen thorns like that before in my life!
