What is there to do when a deer has decided to have fresh Cypripedium sprouts for lunch?

I have to put a wire cage around my Cyps in the deer haven that is my property.. not pretty but effective. I have yet to loose any to deer. Only from my stupidity and learning to grow them.

Side note, I also grow a lot of native plants out in my woods and I push sticks in and around the plant all over so the sticks are above the plant in all angles and it also works great just not 100% if you don’t use newly broken sticks.

Spray the plants and immediate area with a deer repellent containing coagulated eggs.
