Thread: flowers fallow dont like

  1. #1

    flowers fallow dont like

    is there any flowers fallow dont like.

    my father passed away recently and so i put a planter on his grave with some pansies in to brighten it up a bit, until we can get a head stone and it looks like somebody owns him. well i went out there this morning and the fallow have been over the hedge munched half the pansies and pulled up the rest. if i was succesful when stalking yesterday in the pouring rain i would of said thats just what i deserved but this seems to be rubbing salt in the wounds.

    do they like or dislike marigolds as i know they repel some animals/insects

    regards pj

    We have had roe in our gardena few times, they had a go at most things including eucalyptus and pittasporum! two things which must taste pretty rank. They left the lupins alone so maybe they would be worth a try...

    Lupins are actually quite poisonous so that might be why?

    This is a good book with full lists of what deer don't seem to like.

    I guess they were an edible variant?

    No experience of lupins and deer, but foxgloves are are also poisonous and grow untouched in my deer enclosure and in surrounding woodland and forestry where deer abound. Also now that I think of it, there are plenty of wild primroses in the woodland at this time of yearl. Both come in ornamental colours, as well as the standard wild purple (foxglove) and yellow (primrose), from garden centres.

    thank you. that should get me started. the field behind our church was up for sale a while ago with a sealed bid auction. we just missed out but that would have been the ultimate solution. high seat in the corner of the graveyard. visit dad and shoot all in one go

    i like the book being damage limitation rather than deer proof. guess it shows i might be up against it

    Daffodils. The main drive through are deer park is full of daffs and there are some 300 deer including 80 fallow in it and they do not eat them but every thing gets eaten

    Yup, Fox Slayer is right.

    I dont know anything that eats Daffy's ... even the bunnies leave them alone.

    I hadnt recognised it in the past but a previous poster is correct in saying wild primroses. One of our woods is full of them and now that I think of it the Roe never seem to touch them.

    Good luck
