Japanese Beetle-Proof Your Roses

From Birds and Blooms Garden eNewsletter

Try planting geraniums, especially white ones, in and around roses. This helps repel Japanese beetles. In the last 3 years, I’ve found less than a dozen beetles on my roses. — Kathi Richards, Dundee, Ohio

Maybe this will work for other plants as well. We get them on our Rose of Sharon bushes. If anybody gives this a try, please add a comment to this post to let us know how it works! We can't plant geraniums since the deer eat them in our community.
