Deeresistible Designer Garden

You Will Adore Them, Deer Will Avoid Them

Watching a family of deer that has meandered into your yard is truly a joy to behold. That is, until you notice them looking at your flower garden as if it were a buffet table.

You can divert bucks, does and fawns from your growing areas by planting beautiful blooms they would rather eschew than chew. There are many types of flowers that people love yet are unappetizing to these gentle but often ravenous creatures. We've included seven such varieties in the new Breck's® Deeresistible™ Designer Garden.

Our flower experts assembled this selection of flowerful perennials to provide gardeners with colourful, nonstop blooms from mid spring to the first frost, year after year. And while deer will usually avoid them, these flowers will be intensely alluring to butterflies, hummingbirds and other pollinators. Plant them as shown in the garden diagram included with your order to get more fluttering and less foraging!

The varieties in this collection cover an area of approximately 87½ square feet (7' x 12½').

This garden is suitable for hardiness zones 3–8. It should be planted in well-drained soil where it will receive full sun.
