Plantskydd is a family of organic repellent products for gardeners as well as professional horticulturists to use to prevent damage to plants and gardens. The products are organic, made from porcine or bovine dried blood which has an offensive odor. The products can also be used to mask a sweet smell as mentioned in my October 2019 article on planting spring blooming bulbs. Soak the bulbs in Plantskydd so animals do not detect them and dig them up. Plantskydd repellents are safe for vegetable gardens and are rain and snow resistant so no need to constantly re-apply. Made in the United States, Plantskydd products can be ordered from their website or purchased at independent garden centers.
