Grow This Beautiful Flower To Repel Groundhogs Naturally
Groundhogs, known for causing major damage to plants, tend to steer clear of daffodils, making the perennials an excellent choice for creating a natural barrier around your garden.
Daffodils are hardy and can grow in USDA Hardiness Zones 3 to 8. They multiply each year through bulb division, increasing their effectiveness as a groundhog repellent over time.
Plant a mix of early-, mid-, and late-season blooming varieties so that you can extend their beauty as well as their duration of repelling capabilities throughout
the spring.
However, as daffodils have a limited blooming period and die back by late spring, it is advisable to complement them with other plants to ensure continuous protection.
For example, strongly scented herbs like rosemary and thyme and vegetables like onions, chives, and garlic can provide ongoing groundhog deterrence throughout the growing season.
