Q.

Deer & Crocus

Zone Zone 4 | Dora VanDyke added on April 13, 2018 | Answered

Whitetail deer in Hayden Idaho pulled crocus bulb out of ground before munching leave and flowers. Will they bloom again next year if I replant them? Should I use blood meal or other supplement to insure they get enough nutients to bloom next year?

Usually, the ground will be enough to fertilize, but it would not hurt to add those. It can be difficult to control deer, as even if it is labeled as deer resistant, they will still eat it. It amazes me every time what they will eat. Crocus are decently toxic, so it could not have been enjoyable.
