CUCUMBERS!

(Bardstown, Kentucky)

I had to give up growing pole beans on my garden fence due to the deer but since I started growing cucumbers on my fence I have had no more problems with deer (And the cucmbers are easy to harvest and leave more ground space for other plants).

Deer don't like
by: robertphilps

Deer don't like the smell of cucumbers and it is a natural animal repellant also.

Cucumber is repellent
by: Anonymous

I learned snakes don't come closer to cucumber plantation. They don't like the smell. That is also the case for Deers. It is a natural animal repellant. The best thing is it is easy to grow and can be available any where.

Wow another natural deer repellent. It is awesome that I met with your article friend. Cucumber is a good one because it is simple and easy to grow. I trust you and I am going to try this in my garden.

And yet they ate my cukes. #*@!# They don't like lavender or spices (oregano, dill, sage, thyme, rosemary, basil, etc.)either. You might try the Scarecrow sprinkler.
