Default Bloomin sheep eating my blooms.

Anyone know what sheep cannot eat, or won't eat. I asked this question last
year and didn't have much luck.

Is it true that they do not like leaves that have a wax coat on them?

I have nowt against em in general, but it drives me wild when they eat all
my best plants. I can't fence my plot off as it mainly consists of loads of
pots and containers on an access path, which is used by my entire street. No
chance of installing a gate etc. I just want to try to outwit the buggers if
I can.

Thanks so much in advance,

Rosie.

Rhododendron ponticum, and gorse.

Probably not. They eat escallonia and holly which are both waxy.
