Makes a great gift! Deer populations have increased in many areas and are now commonly observed near our homes and browsing in our gardens. Although deer may consume any plant, there are many that they don’t find palatable. This collection includes native species they tend to avoid - plants with rough textured foliage, prickly leaves, or spiny stems. Deer also shy away from aromatic forage like mints, bee balms, and hyssops.

A Seed Packet Collection is packaged in a stylish 6.75” x 4.5,” resealable paper envelope with illustrated depictions of the 6 species inside; beautiful enough to frame!

The Deer Resistant Collection includes 6 species, 1 seed packet of each:

Anise Hyssop (Agastache foeniculum) - 1,000 seeds
Rattlesnake Master (Eryngium yuccifolium) - 250 seeds
Wild Bergamot (Monarda fistulosa) - 500 seeds
Stiff Goldenrod (Oligoneuron rigidum) - 1,000 seeds
Hairy Mountain Mint (Pycnanthemum verticillatum var. pilosum) - 1,000 seeds
Compass Plant (Silphium laciniatum) - 50 seeds

For a naturalized look, combine all seed packets to cover approximately 20-25 sq. ft.

Surface sow outdoors on a weed-free site in early spring or late fall. Mow throughout the first growing season. Expect first blooms in year 2.

Alternatively, sow seed in rows in a garden setting in early spring or late fall. Thin seedlings and weed as expected with vegetable gardening. Transplant to permanent locations that fall or the following spring.
