Oh Deer!

I went out today to look around for more deer damage. Fortunately we didn't have any. We had some deer get into our pansies Sunday night. We found the damage Monday morning and sprayed Liquid Fence Monday evening. We usually have some damange every year. The deer are plentiful around here and pansies are one of there favorite foods. Liquid Fence has been our crop saver. It is a nontoxic spray that makes the plants smell bad to the deer (and rabbits) when they stick their nose down to eat. After they come back and find there favorite food has changed smells, they usually don't come back the rest of the season. After using liquid fence on our pansies for a couple of years, we started selling it. We had customers who were tired of planting pansies just for the deer to eat. All the customers who have tried the liquid fence have been happy. So don't let the deer drive you away from planting some fall and winter flowers. Liquid Fence also works on trees and shrubs!

It Fall Planting Time!

Here at Mitchell's Nursery, we have beautiful Pansies, Violas and Ornamental Cabbages & Kale for fall plantings. Now is also the best time to plant trees and shrubs. Planting now, gives the roots time to grow out and establish before it gets hot and dry next summer.

Stop by and we will be glad to help you chose new accents for your landscaping.
