Two problems solved: 1) Modified a deer/rabbit repellent recipe that is cheap to make and has been extremely effective in keeping the critters from eating my tulips. 2) The overpriced deer repellent I used to purchase, was always clogging up the sprayer. Directions: Take a hot needle and poke 20 holes in a milk jug cap. Add 1-egg, 1/2 tsp of Dawn detergent, 1/4 c of veg oil, tsp of hot sauce or cayenne pepper and water to a milk jug. The soap and oil keep keep the pepper on the plant.
Zantedeschia aethiopica 'Crowborough' arum lily - Unusual, pure white hood-shaped flowers that are up to 10-15cm (4-6in) long are produced from late spring to mid-summer. It makes a striking architectural clump with lovely arrow-shaped, glossy dark green leaves. It looks great grown beside water as a marginal plant and can be left outside in most frost-prone areas if it is given a deep winter mulch.
