Wordless Wednesday ~ Deers 1 Garden 0

A few weeks ago I posted about the little marigoldย garden K and I planted. It was beautiful and perfect. That was a Wednesday.

Miracle Gro Garden
Sadly, this was the scene Saturday morning.

I tried replanting the uprooted seedlings, but the next morning they were uprooted again and more chewed up (and still worse the next morning until I gave up). So much for our little flower garden.

  1. Aww that is sad ๐Ÿ™ There is some stuff you can buy that deters them but the one that works supposedly is to tie a pie tin on a stake it scares them with the light and sound I guess.. I am totally trying it this year. Deer ate my corn seedlings last year.

  2. Aww ๐Ÿ™ I’m sorry your plants were ruined! I had to put in raised beds for my veggies last year to keep the bunnies (and the chickens) out of them. I’m not sure what to do about deer though? There must be something you can put around to try and deter them?

  3. I’ve heard of doing trimmed hair in the garden to deter bunnies, I wonder if it would work to keep the deer away?

  4. What a bummer. Look for a plant that deer don’t like to put next to them. Marigolds repel bunnies for sure. I plant them around my veggies for that reason. I had a coworker tell me once to put hair out to keep deer away (from your brushes or from a barber shop.) Not sure if that works as I never did it.

  5. Ugh, I can imagine how frustrating and disappointing that would be. We don’t have a problem with deer down here so I don’t have any good advice for you, but it looks like plenty of others have dealt with it too. Hope you find a good solution!

  6. How sad. Do you know what’s doing it? You can try putting out moth balls, that deters a lot of things. But I would probably be to sad to try it again.

  7. Sad. ๐Ÿ™ Isn’t there some sort of deer repellent you can buy? I swear I read about some once upon a time.
