Deer Resistant Wildflower Blend Ingredients

category: Articles and Instructions category: Flower Talk category: Garden Resources

The wildflower seeds in our Deer Resistant Blend were selected because, in most years of good forage, deer will wander past rather than graze on them. Many of these plants have texture, aroma, or flavour that is not palatable to deer – and other grazing mammals. If you’ve ever tried gardening in an area where deer pass through, you’ll know how frustrating it can be. Fences and deer repellants do work, but in gardens where these are not practical, just plant flowers they don’t like to eat, and enjoy the colour. This blend is also attractive to butterflies, hummingbirds, and wild bees.
