This is my busiest time of year for design and web store sales, so I’m often frustrated that I can’t get outside more often to work in and enjoy our own gardens.
The bulbs below are a surprisingly compatible mix of colors. Our local deer herd did not bother this bed last spring, but this year, when the tulips were just a few inches tall, I found them one morning nibbled to about one inch. I placed 18 deer repellent sticks throughout the bed, and had no further problems.
Even a quick ramble around the yard daily can be extremely important! My lack of attention could have resulted in no bloom and perhaps irreparable damage to the plants.
We need to teach our deer herd about “deer resistant” plants…they nibbled on the daffodils also!
