Tips for Deterring Deer
Many gardeners have had a bellyful of brazen deer. Once they target your yard as a delectable deli, they hop fences, ignore scare tactics, and show up like clockwork to devour plant after plant. They'll trot right up on a porch to chomp off the roses, or stretch high to nibble the Clematis you thought was safe on an arbor.
Hungry deer will eat almost anything -- including occasional forays into the foods listed on our "won't eat" list. It partly depends on what else is available and how hungry the deer are. Deer in different regions have different palates. And the deer in your backyard might be the only one in the neighborhood that enjoys gobbling morning-glories.
