The lone voice of horticultural reason

Orcon Organic Deer and Rabbit Repellent

 It’s probably the second most common question asked by women when I’m on the road speaking at a show, right after hey, big boy, what are you doing later this evening? (Well, I can fantasize, can’t I?)

The question is, what do you recommend for rabbits? (Answer: live traps, a good hasenpfeffer recipe.) Or, what do you recommend for deer? (Answer: apartment living.)

There are other options, of course, mostly involving sprays that work to varying degrees. The Orcon deer and rabbit repellent product is one of the best, a highly concentrated garlic oil contained in a unique plastic container that keeps the product effective up to six months, even after rain.

Gardeners report very good success with the product, as it overcomes the biggest reason most sprays and granular treatments are not effective: gardeners don’t stick with it.

For more information, and to order, click here. If you buy some and try it this coming season, be sure to report back to me. And to answer the first question, after the show I’m going back to the Country Inn and Suites, sitting in bed in my underwear, eating chips, drinking G2 and watching ESPN.
