My neighbor's hens always nibble of our flowering plants and herbs. We've tried fencing and everything yet they still somehow manage to get to the plants. Is there some way to prevent them from eating the plants? A repellent or something that would work?
There is a little trick that helps push hens. You can sprinkle the soil and your plants with spices because the spices have a strong smell that can keep hens away. You can make a spice mixture with curry, cinnamon, paprika, black pepper and salt. Garlic powder can also be effective. Another method can also work it consists of spreading lemon peel or even whole piece of lemon on the ground near your plants.
