Deer Resistant Native Plants

A program entitled “Feeding Butterflies, Not Bambi”: Deer-resistant Native Plants will be presented in its “Know Your Garden” series at the Livingston PL on Thursday April 29 starting at 11 am.

The presenter, Deb Ellis, is the founder and co-leader of the Essex County chapter of the Native Plant Society of New Jersey, a Master Gardener, has served on the Montclair Environmental Commission, and has had a Certified Backyard Habitat through the National Wildlife Federation since 2005. She specializes in growing native plants because she cares about the environment and loves the birds, butterflies, and pollinators that native gardens attract.

In this workshop you will learn which native plants are less likely to be eaten by deer while also feeding butterflies and birds. You will also learn which ones make beautiful garden additions, are easy to grow, and promote biodiversity. She will include recommendations for specific flowers and bushes as well as details on how to grow them.

Described as an “engaging and inspirational” speaker, Deb teaches about gardening with native plants to various groups including master gardeners, youth groups, adult schools, and bird, butterfly, and garden clubs. 

The program is free and open to all.
