Will Mint plants keep deer away?
Regarding this, what plants keep deer away?
Most herbs are both beautiful and deer-resistant, including sage, thyme, rosemary, oregano, lavender and others. Other aromatic choices include Russian sage (Perovskia), catmint (Nepeta), blue mist shrub (Caryopteris), boxwood (Buxus), and ornamental sages (Salvia).
Subsequently, question is, what is a natural deer repellent? The most effective natural, homemade deer deterrent is a spray made of putrid smells, namely eggs, garlic, and chili peppers. All you have to do is spray the mixture on your plants, and deer will not go near due to the offensive fragrance that the spray gives off.
People also ask, what herbs do deer not eat?
The deer-resistant herbs with these high ratings include basil, Greek oregano, rosemary, sage, and thyme. Deer keep their distance from these delicious herbs because of the plant's strong-smelling essential oils or the foliage's intense aroma.
