Wildflowers for Deer Seed Mix per oz.
AKA “St Joseph’s Tolerance Seed Mix”
It’s not for everyone, but some people actually WANT to feed the deer. St. Joseph cares a lot about helping individuals find their place in the world- a safe home, shelter and enough food. Growing Goldenrod and Aster- the “wildflowers for deer-” is the only ethical way to feed the deer that we know.
The deer and the Solidago species co-evolved, which is why the Goldenrod has such an assertive habit. Goldenrod is one of the deer’s favorite foods, and so it had to keep pace with the deer’s voracious appetite. If you’re confused about a holiday gift for your devoted nature loving friend or family member, look no further. Spread these wildflowers for deer seeds at a woodland edge, open field, meadow, pond edge, or any other spot where you’d like to encourage the deer. It’s also possible to use these seeds to strategically re-direct deer away from your closer-to-home gardens, but your mileage may vary. This mix is a great choice for roadside/highway habitat restoration projects, erosion mitigation, streamside stabilization and riparian zone buffer development.
It’s a rare and beautiful human who actually wants to feed the deer (and/or rabbits) on their property. This seed mix is for them. This assortment of Solidago and Symphyotrichum species (Goldenrod + Aster) are perfect deer food. Easy erosion mitigation and edge habitat building plants that can stand up to the abuse doled out by a hungry herd of deer: thanks to all the people kind enough to consider feeding the deer. In Memory of Miami Joe: my first ever client to request this lovely concept. Memory Eternal, friend. May St. Joseph protect and make a safe forever home for you, as you did for the Albany Pine bush deer.
