SALAD ON THE BALCONY
When I first started gardening, I grew planter boxes on the balcony of the apartment I shared with my sister.
I was desperate to keep the possums off my newly planted herbs and vegetables and so my local garden centre recommended I try a possum deterrent spray. A non-toxic deterrent full of chillies, garlic and unfamiliar herbs, it was guaranteed to keep the pests at bay. I only used the spray once because that’s all it took.
The day after spraying not one single plant remained intact. Evidently, the possums thought I had sprayed my plants with tasty salad dressing for them to enjoy.
