0802GD Gardening with Deer

Wednesday, August 2

6:00-8:00 pm

Come to naturalist and garden designer Carol Southby’s wildlife-friendly Penfield garden to learn how the Southbys have created a beautiful landscape despite heavy deer pressure. It’s a matter of making appropriate plant and design decisions: some plants seem to be (for now) deer-proof, others are forgiving of some browsing, and some plants simply won’t survive a serious attack. And for those plants that you and the deer both like, there are protective measures to deploy, including deer-repellent distasteful sprays, fencing, and pokey sticks. Enjoy the gardens and learn about how to tip the balance in your favor. Directions will be emailed before the class.
