A Day with Frank Hyman “Not Tonight Deer”
October 05, 2019 at 02:00 pm • Reynolda Gardens Education Wing
Edible gardens are all the rage, but we don’t want the deer to do all the eating. Fortunately, a lot of plants have evolved with little tricks to make themselves unappealing to deer. There’s no need to memorize some long list of deer-resistant plants while shopping at a garden center. Knowing these plant characteristics will help you create an attractive garden without creating a soup kitchen for these long-legged browsers. The talk will also cover deer fencing and deer repellants.
