Their is just way to many deer and other wildlife that would love to raid my garden
Oh yeah, I have a fence around the vegetable garden in total. It's the only option for any kind of protection.
We have at least 3-4 neighborhood cats, one lives right next door... and my yard is always still filled with bunnies!! Including the yards between me & my neighbor with the cat!!
But we have, and let, *gasp* clover grow in the lawn... and I think that's the siege cover for my flowerbeds from the bunnies. They don't seem to eat my unprotected flowers that people say bunnies like to eat. And I'm assuming it's because we have tons of clover in the lawn in some places. And that's almost always where I see the bunnies sitting - where the clover is most obvious.
Oh... my step-father always apparently planted onions or something in that family, on the outside of vegetables...
He also planted dandelions around tulips.
And had several other strategies of planting bunny-unliked plants around bunny-liked plants.
My mother said this was pretty effective in a lot of front yards they had over the years. (And they lived in 7 or 8 different states over the years.)
