Open Garden Days: Deer Resistant Plants Demonstration Gardens
Sunday, October 7, 2018
7:00 a.m.–7:00 p.m.
This event repeats every day between 8/1/2018 and 11/30/2018.
White-tail deer are herbivores, which means they eat plants. While there are no plant species that are truly deer-proof, deer do develop preferences and will ignore many types of plants in their grazing patterns. Planting with a high diversity of plant species will minimize the impact that any deer will have in your garden.
The gardens around the Conference House Visitors' Center feature plants that deer are less likely to eat. See which plants may work for your home!
