Deer Resistent Plants - Great List on Washington Gardener Magazine Blog

I'm such a nature lover that is a tough moral dilemma for me sometimes when it comes to trying to deter wildlife from my gardens. But no matter how much you love the thought of waking up and spotting a few deer slowly making their way across your property, once they start eating your plants, that love can quickly turn to loathing.

Kathy Jentz, editor and publisher of Washington Gardener Magazine, recently polled her readers and asked them what some of their favorite deer-resistent plants are. She received quite a few responses, and I image the list will keep growing as other local gardeners add their comments.

If you want to add to the list, or read the suggestions of others, visit Kathy's blog post: Favorite Deer Resistent Plants.
