Tulips & Cayenne Pepper
I sprinkled my tulips with cayenne pepper today. In the Spring of 2004, the deer ate all my tulips...just before they were going to bloom. It was so disappointing! Last year, my neighbor told me to sprinkle cayenne pepper on the tulips when you see the buds emerge. So we got a bunch of the pepper in bulk and got a parmesan cheese shaker and it works like a charm! The other day my other neighbor saw me doing this & told me that she puts peppermint oil on her tulips and that works also.
