Oh Deer! Winterizing your landscape for Foragers
October 23, 2019 @ 6:00 am - 8:00 pm$25
Deer and other animals can be devastating visitors to the garden, defoliating the landscape like a swarm of locusts. Prized trees and shrubs can be ruined overnight and some plants such as pine, spruce, arborvitae and juniper often do not recover. Mature trees can be transformed into lollipops with all of the bottom branches defoliated. Although any plant can potentially be browsed by animals, there are certain plants that tend to be less appealing under normal conditions. While there are various repellents and elaborate fences on the market to supposedly protect your garden, this class will provide some good plant selelctions that animals will find less tasty, allowing you to have a beautiful munch-free landscape.
