Has anyone got a foolproof means of winning the battle of field Crocosomia versus the deer problem? Or are they going to be a magnet for the perpetual deer feast.
Possibilities: should I put some chicken wire down to prevent the digging up and cover it with soil?
The deer come at night and take the easy pickings so perhaps some rocks surrounding the bulbs to prevent the pawing which they do?
Suggestions?

if it was me I would encourage the deer to try and get rid of the crocosmia.
