A New Approach to Deer
and Vole Problems
tablets make the entire plant, from roots to flowers, taste like
hot pepper, discouraging, voles, field mice, rabbits, and deer,
virtually any mammal, from feeding on the plant leaves or roots.
The plant even gives off a faint pepper smell that the critters
will learn to avoid.
Apply just once a year.
Completely safe and non-poisonous.
sorry, but we are unable to ship plants to AK, AZ,
CA, HI, ID, MT, NM, NV, OR, UT, WA, WY or outside the U.S.
Plants shipped to these states
must be shipped bare-root (by State law except for AK and HI). We
ship all plants in pots, and the time and expense involved in bare-rooting make it impractical. We
are sorry, but we are unable to comply with these requirements and we
cannot ship to these states.
Our 1986 Catalog
We began growing hostas in 1979 when we opened our first
garden center, The Crownsville Nursery. In 1984 we mailed
our first perennial catalog.

barking at things.
A warning to casual Hosta users:
Many of us, when we first started using Hostas, thought we could stop
whenever we wanted. What begins as casual experimentation can quickly
develop into a serious addiction. If you find that you actually want to
know the differences between ‘Inniswood’ and ‘Paul’s Glory’, if you tell
your spouse that you paid less than you really did for a new
introduction, but brag to other gardeners that you paid more, or if you
no longer care what your spouse thinks, you need help.
Help is available from Bridgewood Gardens, a nursery that specializes
in caring for gardeners afflicted with Hostas.
