TARRYTOWN, N.Y. – What's a gardener supposed to do with all the deer roaming around in Westchester County?
The Hill and Dale Garden Club of Tarrytown is hosting a free lecture on deer-resistant gardening at Warner Library on Thursday. Ruth Rogers Clausen, author of “50 Beautiful Deer-Resistant Plants: The Prettiest Annuals, Perennials, Bulbs and Shrubs that Deer Don't Eat,” will speak on practical suggestions for gardeners at 7 p.m.
“Deer have become one of the most difficult problems facing gardeners in Hudson Valley 'deer country,'” the club said in a press release. “Loss of habitat to human expansion, and hunting regulations in populated areas, have increasingly brought deer into suburban yards. And hungry deer are devouring many lovingly-planted gardens!”
Clausen is a former horticultural editor of Country Living Gardener and has worked as a teacher, lecturer, advisor and judge for botanical gardens and flower shows throughout the country.
Clausen will also answer questions and sign books at the lecture. Refreshments will be served.
This lecture was previously scheduled for March, but had been postponed because of snow.
