My garden is surrounded by the perfect setting for wildlife to live with natural woods including the river running through the property. Although we love to have a passing deer in the meadow I don’t appreciate their love for my tulips in the spring. Last year I was so sad to find many of my new varieties of tulips had been nibbled down to the mulch by deer. I knew it was deer because I could see their hoof marks in the soft ground surrounding the landscape. This year I’m not going to let this happen to my tulips.

There are many different products and method for keeping deer out of the home garden. I like to use the organic methods that have worked successfully in the past as long as they are applied correctly. Liquid Fence and Haveahart both have great eco-friendly deer repellent that work great but in this raining season I find the pellets from Animal Stopper works wonderful.
I’m going to do my best to keep an eye on the tulips this year and keep applying these pellets as needed because I’m looking forward to sharing with you all the new tulips I planted this past Autumn.
Do you have issues with deer in your garden? Please share with me what you do to keep them out of the flowers.
