In early Spring some of my tulips got decapitated. What was happening to the neighborhood? NIMBY! I quickly treated the remaining tulips with a concoction of garlic and habanero peppers and enjoyed their intact blooms. The plot for a take-over by furry residents was foiled!
Now I have peas growing. The concoction is keeping the leaves intact so far. However, I am worried that the garlicky- peppery flavor (more like a stench assault) will be transmitted to the plants and affect the taste of the peas.
- Should I spray the soil only?
- Keep spraying the leaves but stop when the pods form?
- Does anyone have a suggestion?
- Try to change the zoning to bipeds only?
