Authors in Bloom Hop! #Hop #Hop #Hop


Thanks everyone for joining us today. I wanted to share a little tip I use in my garden. I love flowers in all shapes and sizes, but particularly roses and daisies. I live near the woods so we tend to have visitors come visit my flowers and eat half of them. So, I started putting out mothballs at the edges of the flower beds and no further problems.

  3. I have heard of using mothballs for snakes, so I am sure they would keep alot of critters away from the flowers. Thanks for participating in this hop.

    We have a woodchuck who has a path through our yard and he used to love my garden!! I found out that if I put out Juicy Fruit gum sticks around the plot, he would not go into the garden at all. Maybe he didn’t like the fruity smell!! Thank you for the Hop. Already following on Amazon. Sharon catwoman-1(at)comcast(dot)net

  9. I don’t know anything about gardening. Learning a bit from this hop though

  10. Already an Amazon follower. My tip is to plant perennials because they come up every year.

  11. I don’t have any gardening tips. I’ve never been good at that sort of thing. Thanks for the giveaway! ?

  12. I don’t really have any gardening tips, except that it is very difficult to grow a lot of veggies in New Orleans. This may explain why I’m pretty bad at gardening. vipersweb(at)gmail(dot)com

  13. I don’t have much luck with roses either, so I can’t help you there 🙂 , but for the daisies. Ivory soap shavings and human hair are a good deterrent for critters. I give my son haircuts outdoors and gather the trimmings for the garden. Also birdies like it for their nests.

    I’ve also heard that planting plants that deer don’t like the smell off (like Lemongrass), as a border to a garden can help keep them away because the smell of the lemongrass covers the smell of other plants they might like so they’ll look elsewhere. Good luck!
