Are you sick of rabbits, hares or possums eating your plants?

Well have I got a couple of solutions for you!

First off a repellent recipe that I was recently given.

For a small quantity mix the following together and spray on and around your seedlings, remember to repeat the spraying as necessary, especially after heavy rain.

5 eggs, 600mls water, 150mls acrylic paint.

For a bigger quantity to do approx 600 trees you will need

1kg egg pulp or powder, 2 Litres of acrylic paint and 10 Litres of water. Thoroughly mix the egg powder with some of the water to form a paste. Then add the rest of the water and acrylic paint. Mix well and spray on with a backpack immediately after planting. It is the protein smell that the annoying little critters don’t like and the paint helps the smell to hang around the plants for longer.

You can of course put up physical barriers as well. We sell the 3 n 1 guards which will help stop rabbits, and provide a bit of wind protection, and also make it easier to weed spray around the plants.
