This is the setting for 2 pots of flowers on either side of the adirondack bench

My brother just told me the deer did that to his hosta. You can take chicken wire and lay it flat on the ground around your deer edibles. They wont walk on it. The wires go between their toes and they back off. You said none of the spray deterrents work for you right? Or plant more tuff they just dont like.
I'm sorry they ate your flowers. Very aggravating!!

They eat lots of my flowers too! It makes me so mad! :mad: We hung a big windchime out there a couple weeks ago and nothing has been touched since! I don't know if that is what is keeping them away or not but I am hoping so because I don't need them eating anything else! Sorry to hear that you have the same problem Lynne! It is so frustrating when everything looks so nice and the next day you go out there and they have ruined it!

Oh Lynne I'm so sorry to see that, if it's not deer then it's bugs what can we say, this year sure seems to have been quite a trial year for many of us. Glad we can all share with one another. Sure helps carry the load.
