Pansies – Not Deer Resistant

Q: Are pansies deer resistant?

A: They are not. Numerous homeowners have described to me deer that walk along a bed and pull the plants out of the soil with their teeth. You can try using one of the sprayable, scent-based repellents or the systemic Repellex. I have homeowner comments about their Repellex experiences at and I’d love to hear how it works for you.
