Friends of the Arboretum Lecture
"Five Deer-Resistant and Drought-Hardy Gardens"
Frank Hyman, Cottage Garden Landscaping
September 17, 2009 (Thursday) – 7:30 PM–9:00 PM
Suburban and rural gardens can be devastated by our huge population of deer. But Frank has created five kinds of gardens that are growing well and free of deer damage. Deer can be like children who only like things with mild tastes—anything with strong flavors or fibrous textures are mostly ignored by deer. Frank will guide students using slides, stories and Q&A on how to plant gardens that the deer will pass by (woe be unto your neighbor). Attendees will learn how to choose a deer-free garden type for their property, what plants to choose, and how to maintain them.
