"Hardened Deer"

The deer population in your neighbor and in and around you garden becomes "hardened" to genrally any methods we employ to deter them. This is why it is so important to utilize several differnt methods of deer deterrents simultaeneously. Deer are more resistant to the following plants so be sure to consider these as select your new plantings to minimize deer browzing: Spruces, pines, forsythia, spirea, lilace, lantanta, yarrow, hollyhock, coreopsis, iris and foxglove show some resistance to deer. I just bought a big flat of marigolds - deer really hate them! I love them around the garden - so that is a win win! I will also plant marigolds from seed. What Deer Eat
