FYI: Deer DO eat Garden Phlox!Review by Deborah Gardner - Uncasville, CT Posted on 2013-04-25 01:43:05
Sorry MB - you've got this one wrong. I have seen my Mom's David Phlox eaten year after year and it'll be a miracle if they don't chomp down my Candy Cane Phlox. I took a chance and planted right outside my BR window and adjacent to the driveway. I'd better spray every tender perennial I have with Liquid Fence or I may not be seeing any of those pretty blooms at all. And Hydrangeas are fodder for these ravenous Suburbanite pests, too! I practically had to go mental to chase away the doe that decided to eat my starter plant of pink hydrangea. Anything that doesn't have prickers or a foul odor is on the menu for these starving vermin - I mean deer. I used to adore Bambi and his white-tailed family but after two auto collisions and so much decimated landscaping, I want to shoot every last Lyme tick, disease-ridden wretch I see! Why can't Fish & Game and the DEP get their act together and cull these half-starved herds? They should have pity on these poor beasts and put some venison on the menu at Connecticut's soup kitchens, for God's sake!You may think I sound cruel and inhumane to innocent wild creatures, and all that jazz, but if you lived in any part of Connecticut, you'd see that what I'm saying is no exaggeration. I go hiking and I see a lot of deer in my daily life - not one of them looks well fed or healthy. I see ribs jutting out. They eating themselves out of their forest habitats and many wildflower species are also threatened here. But back to the subject - please look more carefully at the plants & flowers you label "deer resistant." You wouldn't want unhappy customers, right?
