TIP: safe Deer Repellent Recipe which really works!!!

DEER Repellent Recipe
(fr. Turf & Recreation magazine. Sept/Oct 2004)

1/2 c Milk
1 tblsp. Dishwashing liquid
1 tblsp. Cooking oil
1 Egg


Add 10 litres water
MIX and SPRAY on tulips and other susceptible plants
Keep in a cool place (e.g. garage) – starts smelling unpleasant after a couple of weeks, but this doesn’t reduce effectiveness

It’s important to be vigilant…Repeat spray every 2 to 3 days…
And more often if it rains or irrigation has been on
