We did not have a deer problem last winter. However, we do have deer in the nursery now! Had to treat some plants with deer repellent – hope it works.
The greenhouses are pretty bare now. Other plants like perennials, shrubs, trees, vines, blueberries, fruit trees and even waterlilies are still available.
PEST ALERT: Check your plants for pests. I have customers with magnolias that had magnolia scale last year. The scale had been there for years, unnoticed. It pays to carefully look over all your plants for leaf damage, borer damage or other suspicious signs of feeding. Learn to look closer for signs and symptoms of potential serious future issues. We are available if you need help. New pests are on their way! An example is the ‘Spotted Lanternfly’ now in Penn. and spreading further this year.
