Hi Kathleen

Some of those sneeky little jokers dont like peppermint oil very much & u
can pop a little under the edges of the pot rims where it dosent wash off so
easy. Don't get it on the plants though & its a bit of a prevention not a

I have a hundred or so Bandicoot holes in the garden where they dig for
worms & grubs every night, while the winter pickings are still scarse &
nothing stops them, i work with them & fill the little holes with mulch or
sand for better drainage hehe.........

I was wondering, did u plant directly into seed raising mix or soe on top &
cover with fine gravel or something ?

I recantly planted hundreds of them before i saw they should be on top &
ankered but not covered or they wont grow.
