Daylily Buds Are Getting Eaten

Question From: Bloomfield Hills, Michigan, United States
Q: The buds of my 24 day lilies are bitten off after they appear - the leaves are not bitten. Do deer like these over hostas, which are nearby? I use Deer Scram regularly and they save my tulips in spring, but not these>

A: Deer love lilies and prefer them to hosta. I use PlantSkydd with success. You must spray new growth regularly, especially when in bud. You can buy it online at Amazon and at English Gardens. Best And Happy Yardening, Nancy
