I love Bambi, But!!!!

My brother lives in Mass. He's going to have to replace the shrubbery that surrounds his house because the deer have nibbled everything they could get their teeth into. Now we love deer but there must be something that looks presentable to plant around ones house that they will leave alone!?!? Help!!!

    If deer population is high, they'll eat almost anything, including toxic plants such as monkshood. There are some plants that they like more than others, so you might have some luck with the plants on this deer resistant plants list from WVU.

      Tks. very much! I printed it out for myself & forwarded it on to my sister-in-law up in Mass. Hopefully this will help her. I found the information & reference sites both interesting & helpful. jaw
