One of the first bulbs to bloom in spring, Siberian Squill is a joy in sun or part shade. This super-easy perennial bulb combines with Crocus, Glory-of-the-Snow, Snowdrops, and early Daffodils to create brilliant color just as the garden awakens!

This little plant offers dark blye blooms, shaped like bells and hanging on slender stems above deep green foliage. Siberian Squill colonizes easily into great swathes of color that needs almost no maintenance to return year after year.

Deer leave this Siberian Squill alone, and harsh winters do not bother it. Expect multiple flowering stems from every bulb, and multiple blooms from every flowering stem. A mini bouquet for the early-season garden! This is a must have. Zones 3-8.

Deer Resistant Trees

As the deer population has boomed and food has become scarcer, they have become more aggressive. In some areas deer will strip your garden bare, leaving nothing green or flowery behind. While there is no such thing as a completely deer-proof garden, there are some effective things you can do to protect your garden from these hungry animals.

Use physical barriers

A High Fence
Deer can jump pretty high, but a fence higher than eight feet (higher on an up-slope) and flush with the ground will keep any deer out.

Electric Fences
They are a much easier and less expensive solution. Deer generally will not try to jump electric fences, but will rather try to climb through the wires, receiving a deterring shock.

An even less extreme physical option is to put bird netting over your larger and more susceptible plants.

Plant Deer-resistant Varieties

Herbs, some conifers, and many flowers are some of the best deer-resistant plants. More fragrant plants will often deter predation. Planting just a few deer-resistant plants will limit grazing of your other plants. Remember, "deer-resistant" does not mean deer-proof. A hungry animal will eat just about anything.

Having a dog In the Family

Dogs Keep Deer Away Owning a dog, especially a big dog will almost always keep deer from approaching your home. Just the scent of the dog will keep most deer away, and if your dog lives outside you will probably never see any deer.

For most gardeners, it is a combination of different solutions that works best. Every gardener has to find the solution that works best in their garden.
