How can I keep Deer and Rabbits from eating my flowers?
You can use deer and rabbit resistant plants. The University of Rutgers has an excellant search guide on deer resistant plants at www.njaes.rutgers.edu/deerresistance/ . However, if you are going to use plants they like to eat, you will have to use some pre-cautions. You can use netting to cover the plants, or you can use a deterrent. We have found the best deterrent is blood meal or millorganite. Both need to be applied weekly and after heavy rains.
