Talkback: Controlling weeds

Posted: 13/05/2012 at 20:54
There is a creepy crawly weed on our property that is impossible to destroy. Winter before last, the lamp post garden was covered with black plastic in the hopes of killing some overly ambitious dianthus, as well as those creepy crawly weeds (haven't a clue what the name of them is.) The plastic was close to impossible to remove because those miserable weeds grew right into it and were flourishing in the warmth underneath!

If anyone has a solution to that, I would so appreciate getting even with those horrible weeds!

Deer proof plants and shrubs

Owning 10 country acres includes all the wildlife.  One of the garden site's readers reported deer did not like coriander which was planted throughout the garden, as well as cutting its branches and laying them around the "favorite" plants.

Also read about Milrganite, an organic fertilizer that because of its ingredients! deer avoid.    

Another idea--because of its sharp pointed leaves, deer abhor holly.
