Kangaroo Resistant Plants

Kangaroo Resistant Plants

Living in some parts of Australia gardeners are faced with different hurdles to overcome. Kangaroos could be one of them; we have worked on a list of plants that Kangaroos do not seem to find very tasty. This is due to the smell or the taste of them. But in saying this if Kangaroos are hungry and there is no other food around they will eat anything.
