Finally Back

November 19th, 2018

Sorry for the lack of posts last week. I was actually sick, something I picked up on our way back from Israel. I had big plans of going through all my photos and sharing the beautiful thing we saw, but instead I spent the week on the couch trying to rest up to make sure I got better quickly for the busy holiday season. I was feeling better this weekend, which meant I was able to get out and get a few things finished in the garden, namely wrapping plants to keep them protected from the nibbling deer.


I find using upturned pots over smaller plants works very well. This is an especially effective method of helping plants that are on the edge of their hardiness zone as well. I cover several roses and my acanthus each winter. I also wrap plants in burlap. This year I used various plant supports I had throughout the garden. I put them over small blueberries, roses, and other plants that the deer find especially delicious. Then I wrapped them with burlap and fastened them with twine. This method works quite well and it looks fairly nice as well.

What methods have you developed to protect plants from deer?
