Handy tips - but I wish they had one for repelling wild boar! (Which are a plague round where I live - )

I have bees and butterflies, pull weeds by hand, for the needed pest controls I just look it up on the Internet when there is a real problem.

Started a bit of prep. coop restrictions only allow minimal arrangements (and no storage outside) which I don't mind. I like the manual aspect and the "gettin' into the dirt. Will plant milkweed this year. My lilac bush is my fave.

Maybe not this year ~ except for veggies and that garden's fenced. In past years the critters have always found my gardens a little TOO friendly. What a shame. They sure were pretty.

Good tips for when the garden is not buried under snow. I look forward to gardening once again when the weather gets warmer.
