If there's one thing we have in common as gardeners, it's the need to ward off unwelcome wildlife. For many that means deer. If the best defense is a good offense, then it makes sense to start by choosing deer resistant plants.

Just about every Extension Service has put together a list of plants that are generally less popular with visiting deer. Unfortunately no one can claim a plant is totally deer resistant. It seems the deer themselves do not read these lists and so have been know to eat a plant or two listed as deer broccoli. But these lists should provide you with a start. We'll talk about other critters another time.
