Sharing her suburban yard with deer for almost 40 years, Betty has lists of plants they avoid and those that are deer candy. Also, ideas on repellents, barriers and recent experiments with “repellent” plants.
A bit about Betty: She grew up running through woodland wildflowers on a farm in Missouri. For over 20 years, she has been a St. Louis Master Gardener and an active member of St. Louis Wild Ones. She makes presentations on native landscaping for both organizations. Her yard is certified Platinum in the Bring Conservation Home program. She also helps maintain native plantings at the National Museum of Transportation.
