Not Tonight Deer: No More Long-legged Rats in Your Garden

Frank Hyman, Cottage Garden Landscaping

Register

Suburban, rural, and even urban gardens can be devastated by our huge population of deer. Learn 1) which types of plants deer don’t like, 2) which cost-effective fences keep deer out, and 3) how repellents can keep your plants free of deer. Frank has created five gardens that are growing well and free of deer damage. Frank will guide attendees using slides, stories, and Q&A on how to plant gardens that the deer will pass by (but woe be unto your neighbor).
