Q: What can I do to keep critters from eating my pansies?
A: Theresa Schrum replies: “There are products such as Ropel which will supposedly repel rabbits and other animals from your garden.
There are also some home rememdies which work pretty well. These include human hair, soap shavings, cayenne pepper and even used cat litter (pregnant women and children should avoid contact with used litter).
Some of these have to be re-applied after rain or watering, but have been shown to have some effectiveness.”
