Kaoilin Clay...(surround) protection

Post  jimmy cee on 4/9/2013, 8:17 am

For those having problems with pests, hot sun, etc.

Look into Kaolin Spray (surround)

An organic protector that seems to work for me.
I'll know more about it after this season's over

Once it's on it looks like snow is covering the plant, perfectly harmless, but keeps the bugs away.
Rain removes it..
Check it out, it may be for you

Not sure about the deer, I have fences up for them, however a white coating encompasses the entire plant so I bet it will also work for deer...
We fence everything here for deer, and we live in town.

Be careful and use as the label instructs. I would not want to add a lot of clay to my beds.

I can't afford a fence and this sounds promising! But thanks for the warning Camprn!

The fence I have around my garden cost me very little.
Permission from local land owner to trim some of his weeded wood area.
Used Post's from the local electrical utility co.
Small trunks and branches to make up the barrier.
Some good work to put it all together
A very rustic appearance, even around my wife's flowers, she loves it
and that's saying something...
