“I can’t figure out this weather. After a temperature of 80 degrees for a few days, it’s kind of hard to get used to colder temperatures again. In the Northeast we were very lucky this winter and the spring is great. Unlike Europe, with unusual extreme cold, windy and snowy conditions this winter and severe drought this spring, we have green grass and rain every so often, just a perfect combination for the flowering trees and perennial flowers just coming out. We have been participating in many flower and garden shows since early February in Virginia. Check out our upcoming events to find out where you can find us. The purpose of these shows is to introduce Deer Defeat all natural deer, rabbit and groundhog repellent to all the gardeners throughout the United States.
Deer Defeat was also tested and is recommended by members of the National Home Gardening Club. While traveling through many states, we saw the differences in temperature and the flowering plants in those regions. Sometimes it’s hard to believe that with states so close to each other there is such a difference in hardiness zones. I wish we could grow some of those beautiful plants that thrive in southern states. In many flower and garden shows we have seen some beautiful landscape designs, just breathtaking, designed by some of the local professionals. I have posted many pictures on our Facebook and most of the times the pictures does not do justice to these projects undertaken by the very talented landscapers and designers. They are limited by the indoor space of the exhibit area and have only a few days to put the whole project together. There is amazing talent in those beautiful displays of flowers and colors, just when we all need it most, the end of winter. If you have not attended any of these flower shows, mark it on your to do list to see a few next year. and don’t forget your camera. You’re in for a feast!
So here it is, it’s spring again. Your perennials are coming out. Lilies are half way out already. Most of the trees are in bloom or done. Forsythias bloomed almost at the same time as all the other trees because of the warm spell this early spring, hosta is peering out too. Like I have always said, the most important time to spray your flowers with Deer Defeat repellent is as soon as your perennials are out of the ground a few inches. Follow up every 6 to 7 inches of new growth and once mature spray once per month. For any flowers with buds, make sure to lightly spray the buds to protect the flowers just ready to open. Please read our instructions on how to use Deer Defeat in the spring on our home page.
This is the best time to start seeding the flowers directly in the ground or if you have bulbs there is still time to plant them. The ground was not frozen this winter in the Northeast and we were able to plant any type of bulb. Just a small tip for your bulbs: soak your bulbs in Deer Defeat solution for an hour or two and then plant them. The repellent is nourishing for the bulb, not only will it protect the bulbs from voles, moles, chipmunks and squirrels digging them out but it will also give them a boost to grow faster.
Enjoy gardening!” -DeerDefeat April 2, 2012
