The deer problem in New Jersey gardens is a big one; Gregg Tepper has first-hand experience dealing with this issue on a large scale. He is the Senior Horticulturist for the Arboretum at Laurel Hill, which is comprised of two cemeteries, the East Cemetery located in the East Falls section of Philadelphia and the West Cemetery located in Bala Cynwyd, Pennsylvania, where there is heavy deer pressure.
Get answers to your deer problems as Gregg delves into his experiences with what he's found to be the best native, deer-resistant plants and creating a strategy for rebuffing deer with effective and safe natural deer repellent products.

Lovely, dramatic color combinations and textures, Mother Nature is quite the artist and her craft was amply visible at the Arboretum this week!. A lovely, strongly scented Syringa meyeri 'Palibin' (Meyer Lilac) watches over the delicate, pale blue flowers of Amsonia tabernaemontana (Eastern Bluestar); a newly pruned Cotinus' foliage (Smoke Bush) dramatically emerges among a bed of fresh, green strappy Hemerocallis (Daylily) foliage. A bee busily works the lemon yellow flowers of Euphorbia palustris (Marsh Spurge). So much more to see, visit soon!
