The Q&A Archives: Geese Eating Flowers

Question: What flowers can be planted that geese and ducks will not eat? We live by a pond and are under seige!

Answer: Unfortunately these birds seem to be fairly indiscriminate in their rampages. Rather than adjusting the plant selection you may need to consider either fencing them out or otherwise deterring them from approaching the plants. Some gardeners report success using the inflatable "scare eyes" and flash tape sold for scaring birds from the garden. Maybe that would also work for you.
