Roses and Raspberries getting munched on?

Hey guys, I know that most of you probably already know of this tip, but I thought just in case you didn't that I would share it with you.

To deter critters like rabbits and deer, plant garlic cloves or onion bulbs in the same area as your raspberries and roses. I know what you are thinking... garlic and onion bulbs take a while to get started. They have to be above ground before the smell can even be detected by the critters. Well, while you wait for your new best friends to grow up, just sprinkle some plain old garlic powder on your plants.

If you do choose the garlic powder method, be sure to reapply after rain or strong wind.
