Deer Proofing a la Winter Sowing.
When we first moved here in 2001, we decided to grow sunflowers. In 2002, we planted loads of them in a small meadow on the property. Just as they were about to bloom, the deers came one night and ate all the leaves and buds. The neighbours laughed at the sight of the stalks... My daughter surmised that the 'deers have to eat too maman'.
Since then, I hadn't grown any, but missed them. So this year I picked out some 'Kong' seeds and tried it. Last night the deers were on the property, but I guess this one is too tall!!
It has a huge bud at the top and I can't wait for it to flower. They also don't like the Marsh Mallow plants growing in the back. Deerproofing is starting to be fun!
