Thanks Jimmy and Lori. I will look up your references. I agree that deer also need to eat and heed your advice. Never heard of American currents but will now look them up.

Seed Savers Exchange is great for heritage heirloom seeds and plants,They have preserved thousands of varieties over the years from extinction by the likes of Monsanto & Co.

Hi everyone, I am new to this group, but have been busy creating planting beds. I would like some help in knowing where to buy seeds/plants in general.  I am also wondering what to do as here in Virginia we have many deer and would like to plant (some will have to be in containers though) many things.  Herbs are not a problem though as deer don't like them.  Any and all help would be appreciated.

Thank you!

I have 20 grafted persimmons of different varieties to plant,one of my favourite fruits,especially the astringent types when they go mushy and super sweet....amazing,the equal of any tropical fruit.
