Some are so expensive to use, buying new plants may cost less. Unfortunately, that isn’t what anyone wants.

We all have special plants – flowers, shrubs, and trees that we aren’t willing to live without. Naturally some of these are irresistible to deer too, even more so when there’s not lots of wild food for them.

  • Smell sweet? Probably deer candy.
  • Deer smell plants a mile away.
  • Deer eat 7 pounds a day.

Wise plant selection can greatly reduce many homeowner’s need to apply repellents. Using more deer resistant plants in your yard makes sense.  The selection is better than you might think.
