This morning’s article was on a subject that frustrates many gardeners: how to keep deer out of your garden and landscaping. I like viewing deer, but I want my hostas too.
This subject is a two-parter, with this morning’s article discussing plant choice and garden design as methods of deterring deer. The next article in two weeks will discuss fencing and commercial deer deterrents.
I’d love to hear what methods have worked for you, although let’s avoid the “lead poisoning” option, since deer are protected under the law as a game species and it’s illegal to shoot deer except during a legally sanctioned hunt or through special permit.
What less drastic measures have worked for you?
