In the Garden this Week

The deer have mown down my “deer resistant” salvia hedge, the buds off my newly planted lilac and have pullout out and eaten my balloon flower perennial. Not winning… I have put up netting and will try Bobbex on the recommendation of my husband’s cousin who regularly does battle with deer.

On a happier note, here are a few plants that survived both the deer and the rabbits.

Pinks

Delphinium

lettuce and herbs

The pots are starting to fill out. Just waiting for the geraniums to bloom.

This mini rose comes out in the rich pink colour and fades to cream as it ages.

Mandevilla

white bleeding heart

Cosmos starting to bloom
