Deer-Proof Your Garden By Planting This Stunning Blue Plant
Unfortunately, colorful blooms often bring more than just friendly pollinators to your garden. To deter deer from visiting, try planting fragrant black and blue salvia flowers.
Black and blue salvias have a strong fragrance that is off-putting to a deer’s powerful sense of smell. By using them as a border, you can protect the other plants in your garden.
While deer may be tempted to nibble on them if food sources become scarce, it is very rare. Plus, the fast-growing, low-maintenance flowers are very easy to add to any garden.
Simply plant them in a sunny area with well-draining soil. Consider pairing them with other fragrant herbs also known to deter deer to further strengthen your garden’s defenses.
