Milorganite adjacent to a vegetable garden?

Can Milorganite be used in a flower bed that is used as edging around 
a vegetable garden?   I understand that it may work as a deer 
deterrent but that it should not be used in the vegetable garden bed 
itself.  Are the heavy metals or other undesirable Milorganite 
components very mobile in the soil?  Does anyone know whether this 
is a safe application?  Would depressing the flower bed or raising the 
vegetable garden bed help?  What about edging between the flower 
garden and the vegetables?  I know that fencing and other deer 
repellents are options as well.
