Check out the latest gardening video from the Master Gardener℠ volunteers of Buncombe County.

Products promising to rid your garden of voles, rabbits, deer, raccoons, and snakes fill garden store shelves. But which to use and are they effective? In this 20-minute video, Phil outlines the various types of repellents on the market today. He steps through “best way to use” rules, product content, application methods, and safety for edibles. Phil contrasts product research and development methods with the home garden environment and actively growing plants.
