I wonder if I ring my garden with Artemisia Absinthium, would it keep the rabbits out, or would they just shimmy under it and hit the cabbage any way?

Little fuckers are going to get me pissed pretty soon. I'll get the RWS #36 our if they don't stay away.

We have a drainage pond not far fromt he house. I'm planting lemon balm around the back porch to see if it helps there. I read somwhere that it was a natural mosqueto repellant.

Also, it may be wise to give 'em a heads up (as it were) over at the Lounge.


They know about it.

They may be aware of it, but it hasn't slowed activity any in the ole thoughts on making absinthe section.

Your sig line made me chuckle, as I have not read read the works of Frank Herbert in many years.

Absinthium keeps insects away; they won't touch it.

As for rabbits, I've read that you can use urine of animals that put the fear of God into rabbits, such as cats. How you milk the urine from the cats, I don't know. Maybe used cat litter? But then your garden would be less than fragrant. Rabbits are good diggers, not to mention leapers, so fences are iffy. You might just have to share with them.

As for the Lounge, what I meant was that one or more Lounge moderators participated in (private) discussions at this forum which revolved around the latest ban on THAT subject here - therefore it wasn't necessary for anybody to go and report to them or anything. Said moderators are members of this forum, after all. What came out of it, I couldn't say - I haven't read the Lounge in many moons.

You're the second person to mention Frank Herbert. He wrote "Dune", right? I never read it. I saw the TV production (part of it anyway), the one with Sting in it. A little bald-headed girl, talking about the apparent hero, says something like "For he IS the Cuisinart Shadarack" - a messiah of some sort, I guess.

I should have said "they won't EAT it" .... I was still thinking about the rabbits.

The little black bugs are common aphids. Aphids LOVE absinthium. A healthy dose of ladybugs is often enough to get rid of the aphids. The aphids won't do much damage unless the infestation gets extreme.

I had a crazy outbreak of aphids last year on my A.A. I shook the hell outta the branches, sprayed on some soapy water, then washed liberally with the hose. viking_emoticon.gif

Suckers disappered after that.

In this area, we get infested with those damn Asian Ladybugs every spring. Like Zman said, they are supposed to good at eliminating aphids. I could have sent you a few thousand, Icarus.

That's interesting; I've never seen bugs of any type near my wormwood except spiders. Of course, the presence of spiders means bugs are surely there. For sure I've never seen damage to as much as a single leaf from insects. Aphids are a nasty pain in the ass. So are the ladybugs when they invade the house in the autumn, but they do destroy aphids.

Aphids are usually crawling all over my Wormwood plant. Unfortunately the ladybugs don't tend to go near it, they usually spend there time on the honeysuckle (which is also usually crawling with aphids).

Speaking of Artemesia, Here is a pix of the most common realted plant in the local area. It is called Dusty Miller, which is not strictly an Artemisia, but a Senecio Cineraria, which appears to be related. This is the first one I've seen bloom in the 20+ years I have lived here.

Surprisingly enough, I saw some honey bees on the flowers today while I was working in the yard. I would not have expected honey bees to be attracted to it.

I checked a half dozen other plants round the area this weekend, and none are flowering.
