"My dogs have the super short fur so not muvh fur to collect. I walked my dog around and let her "go" next to the flower bed and left it there instead of picking it up. It seemed to work! I had no more problem with my roses! When it dried I…"

"If anyone is having problems with deer, the only thing I found that worked for us was Liquid Fence spray, used as directed it worked great! Only problem is you do not want to spray it on a windy day, or if you plan on spending any time near…"

"Last summer I found four tomato plants in the garden next to the compost pile. I dug them out and planted them in a bucket not expecting them to live. This soil has some kind of wilt, my Mother tells me. We have not been able to grow tomatoes…"

"Any thoughts on how to discourage rabbits from eating my beans? In the fall garden it was deer and now the gi-normous rabbit is here for the summer garden. I wouldnt mind so much if they would leave me some!"

"Jon, I have Oxalis growing in several places in my yard and I love them. Maybe be volunteers from the neighbor (my Mother) she has them growing in a flower bed with buttercups and roses. I thought they were called shamrocks. Learning a lot here."

Those flowers were the old fashioned kind of chrysanthemum . I have three colors of these and they thrive here. They just have a single bloom. Good luck if you try some. They are much hardier than the greenhouse grown ones.
