Laidback Gardener Tip of the Day

Scare Predators Away

août 22 (anglais)As vegetables mature, they attract several pests to the garden: groundhogs, raccoons, squirrels, etc. To help scare them away, apply blood meal, an organic fertilizer, to the soil around the plants just before the vegetables mature. The animals will be afraid at first and avoid the site. By the time they finally realize that there really was no danger (and they will!), the harvest will be already finished.

Garden writer and blogger, author of 65 gardening books, lecturer and communicator, the Laidback Gardener, Larry Hodgson, passed away in October 2022. Known for his great generosity, his thoroughness and his sense of humor, he reached several generations of amateur and professional gardeners over his 40-year career. Thanks to his son, Mathieu Hodgson, and a team of contributors, will continue its mission of demystifying gardening and making it more accessible to all.
