Deer Resistant Plants

  It is getting to the time of year when we are thinking of new plants for the garden. Deer can be a problem for us, so we've been researching plants that deer will usually avoid. Here is a list we have compiled. We are going to try some as border plants around the garden and some of the smaller ones around our small fruit trees. Hopefully they will help keep the little buggers out of the garden this year!
