Then, when they came into bloom I festooned the bed with 'deer spears' (thanks for naming them, Tammy) so as to keep out the deer, but allow bees and hummers access to the blooms.
Well, I also grew a row of Yvonne's behind the privacy fence. Deer ate them, too, until I draped them with netting.
They've started to bloom, so in this case I've tented the netting to create a tunnel to allow 'nice' critter access from the open ends.
Haven't actually seen any bee or hummer activity there yet, but I'm sure they'll figure it out. After all, what's the point of growing flowers if they don't do any good but look pretty?
