Gardening in Deer Country
No fee. Registration deadline: October 25.
The growing number of white-tailed deer coupled with the shrinking natural habitat is pressuring these deer into suburban and even urban yards and gardens. You see the tell-tale hoof prints of deer in your garden and recognize that you’ve had visitors who enjoyed your plantings for dinner—so what do you do?
Attend this program to discover a number of ideas and strategies to combat deer. Take home ideas that you can employ in your garden so you can enjoy a lush and balanced landscape. Courses of action to consider for this growing problem include sprays, fragrant fertilizers and fencing.
