Loads of deer here.  They LOVE tulips more than anything else . However, mine do not eat daffs, chinodoxa, primroses, pushkina, snowdrops or hellebores we grow lots of them.  We have also fenced off an area of garden to grow all the deer ambrosia.

if you want me to give my summer planting list too then let me know ....its getting longer each year.  I plant sacrificial offerings of a single plant, and if it survives then I plant swathes of them.  We rarely see them, but they visit most mornings normally takes them less than 2 days to find new fodder to munch.

Love your new garden Hollie Will be great to see that border coming together, and I have soil envy.  Looks lovely and black and crumbly

Poor Flynn Hope you work out what is upsetting his system soon.

hugs for Liri and Lesley and their Mums.  Hope both recover speedily

thank heavens the winds have died down.  Luckily no damage here - hope everyone else escaped harm (apart from the dustbin lids - one of the advantages of a wheelie bin).  

Porridge .....yum

Might be worth feeding the leaves with tomorite (or something like it) a couple of times this year before they disappear -will give them a boost for next season
