Gardening in Deer Country

October 4, 2020 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm EDT

Losing your plants to the deer?

Gardening in Deer Country

Sunday, October 4 from 3:00 – 4:30 pm

Presented by Steve Wright, Director of Horticulture/Curator of Plant Collections at Jenkins Arboretum & Gardens

Losing your plants to the deer? You’re not alone! It’s estimated that whitetail deer cause over one billion dollars in suburban landscape damage each year. In this virtual presentation, Steve Wright will discuss some issues affecting deer populations and offer some landscaping tricks and plant species that you could use to create a beautiful home garden that deer won’t eat! Tune in with your questions and a notepad, and leave with some inspiration for your garden. And don’t forget! Our Plant Shop is open until October 11 so you will have time to visit Jenkins and purchase many of the plants Steve recommends.

This lecture will be held virtually. A link and viewing instructions will be emailed after your registration is complete. Contact programs@jenkinsarboretum.org with questions or help with registration.

Support our programs! For the remainder of 2020 our lectures will be free, but as you register, please consider making an optional donation to help us cover expenses such as speaker fees, technology upgrades, or staff time to facilitate programs. Every donation helps us continue to offer great programs in new ways to our community!

Why free? This has been a challenging year and offering flexible pricing for programs is one way Jenkins can support the health and wellbeing of our community. We know that our programs can offer inspiration and rejuvenation, and don’t want cost to be a barrier to accessing great information on gardening and horticulture.
