Kangaroo-Proof Plants

It may seem odd to gardeners in other parts of the world that kangaroos can be a real pest
in Australian gardens. They eat their way through many precious plants including roses, fruit trees
and bedding plants, even hardy native plants which do not appear tasty at all!
It seems there aren’t many plants which kangaroo won’t eat. Aromatic and prickly shrubs are
the last to be munched, but by late summer in dry conditions, roos seem to eat almost anything.
The following list has been compiled from information gathered from local gardeners. We welcome your comments about your experience with Kangaroos in the garden.
