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.)

  • Information
  • Our special collections have been created so that you may experiment with wonderful companion flower bulbs in smaller quantities at exceptionally low prices. All varieties are individually packaged and labeled. Horticultural information and individual descriptions are included under each variety's listing on our website. The estimated square footage for each collection is based on a single layer, solid planting at the rate of four large bulbs per square foot or nine small bulbs per square foot. The planting coverage will vary based on your particular landscape design. Determine the square footage of your garden by multiplying its width by its depth. Collections are shipped mid-October. All bloom times are approximated for horticultural zone 5 in a normal, prolonged spring. Please note that spring heat spikes can cause flowers to bloom early and perhaps a bit shorter although they will continue to grow in height while they are in bloom. Adjust the estimated bloom times for your clients' gardens according to their horticultural zone or microclimate.
