HOW PLANTS ARE SHIPPED
The size of the plants we ship has been selected to reduce the shock of transplanting. For some, this means a large, bareroot crown. Others cannot travel bareroot or transplant best if grown in containers. We ship these perennials and annuals in 1 pint pots, except as noted. We must point out that many perennials will not bloom the first year after planting, but will the following year, amply rewarding your patience. We ship bulbs as dormant, bare bulbs, sometimes with some wood shavings or moss. Shrubs, Roses, vines, and other woody plants may be shipped bareroot or in pots. The size of the pot is noted in the quick facts for each item.

Kay in Md. from Potomac, Md.
Our yard is on a deer trail from the wildlife easement on the back of our property to the rest of the neighborhood. As you can imagine, deer damage is a real problem for us.
We have used Deer No No for 2 years. The first year we ordered a container to protect 8 newly-planted rugosa roses, and were so pleased that we ordered 2 containers the second year. Each bag lasts through the summer, with remnants left even after a full year. The remains don't have much odor left, but the deer didn't eat any of the tender shoots on the roses this spring, so they must still be working a little.
Last summer was the worst yet for deer damage in our garden, with deer eating even deer-resistant plants, and even coming up the steps to eat from pots on the porch. But the plants we protected with Deer No No were undamaged.
I have ordered 8 packages of Deer No No for my large flower gardens this summer. We will place them on stakes every 4 to 6 feet around the parimeter of the gardens, with additional pouches for each of the rose bushes. Yes, it's expensive, but so are the shrubs, trees, perennials, and annuals I have planted. And if we can keep the deer from starting to eat this spring, we will have a better chance at keeping everything we've planted.
Bonus! White Flower Farm offers packages of 8 pouches for about the same price as the packages of 6 that I've found elsewhere.

Strong scented green body soap (Like irish spring) in organza bags from the craft store are as effective and cost under $10.00. My perrienial gardens are extensive and over half are on the edge of the woods. I drop the soap bags with a 1"X1" chunk in the scrub along the edges of my garden in the spring and my cocker spaniel brings them back to me in the fall.
