Glad shoots - in our experience they leave these alone.  However, they think
the flowers are candy.  We had to stop growing them outdoors because the
deer ate the flowers right up the stem, just as they showed color. Growing
them in crates this year, between the high tunnels, which we plan to close
off with gates at each end.

Waushara has good prices, but I have no idea whether they still have any
stock.  THE WAUSHARA GARDENS, N5491 5th Drive,Plainfield, WI 54966

Hello and regards! 

I need to buy a few hundred glad bulbs and it seems like I've missed the
boat - any sources for bulbs this late in the spring?

Also, does anyone know how appetizing glad shoots are to hungry deer?

Thanks for any help...
