Gardening in deer country can be frustrating. This guide discusses several commonly used deer deterrents, but suggests the best approach is simply to choose plants that deer don’t like to eat. It catalogs 50 of the showiest annuals, perennials, shrubs, ferns, bulbs, herbs and grasses that deer tend to shun. It includes color photographs of each plant, along with their deer-resistance ratings and hardiness zones, as well as growing tips and suggestions for companion planting.
