Dealing With Deer, Pebble Trays For Houseplants, and Live Show Questions

This episode of Plantrama was recorded live at the Northwest Flower and Garden Show in Seattle. Ellen and I talked about outwitting rabbits and deer, plus we argue about the benefit of pebble trays filled with water for humidifying plants. We end with attendee questions about deer and cannabis, deer training and more.

Do Ellen and C.L. sometimes disagree about plants and gardens? Does a deer like hosta?
