Collection P: The Deer-Proof Garden

As much as we love wildlife, we hate to see deer grazing in our gardens. Flower bulbs that are not normally deer bon-bons include: Allium, Anemone blanda, Camassia, Chionodoxa, Corydalis, Crocus, Dutch Iris, Eranthis hyemalis, Erythronium, Fritillaria, Geranium tuberosum, Galanthus, Hyacinthoides, Hyacinths, Ipheion, Ixiolirion, Leucojum, Muscari, Narcissi, Ornithogalum, Oxalis, Puschkinia and Scilla. Our fragrant, bareroot Herbacecous Peonies are not eaten by deer either.

Estimated planting area: 40 square feet. Top size bulbs. Bloom time: April-July. Plant the smaller bulbs about 5" deep and 5" apart; plant the Narcissi 6" to 8" deep and 6" apart and plant the big Allium bulbs 6" to 8" deep. Horticultural zones: 4-7. Height: 5" to 24". Please note that our collections are shipped in mid-October.

(Please note that due to state agricultural restrictions, we are not permitted to ship Allium bulbs to Idaho or the following 5 counties in the state of Washington: Adams, Benton, Franklin, Grant and Klickitat.)
