Deer present a major challenge for gardeners. Hungry deer can munch plants to the ground and ruin all of your hard work. While there are many ways to keep deer out of the garden, including fencing and deer repellents, one of the best solutions is to plant deer-resistant plants. While no plant is deer-proof, deer-resistant plants are ones that deer tend to avoid because they may smell bad, not taste good, be toxic or have a bad texture. When growing a deer-resistant garden, choose from a variety of deer-resistant perennials, shrubs, bulbs and other plants. When selecting plants for sale online, make sure they are suitable for your grow zone and planting area. Also, check their mature height and spread.
