    We're losing a battle in our garden with the deer.

    We've
    used the sprays that are available and the moment it rains or a few
    days after we spray, bulbs, plants, flowers, everything is deer food.


    Any brilliant ideas ? Dumb Question About Garden Mistsofavalon_lightsabre




    High
    field fences 8 feet high with bob wire strung along at the top. The
    other thing I learned was to plant stuff they didn't like (daffodiles,
    rosemary, etc). They also didn't like irish spring soap, human urine,
    mark your territory. The best bet though if you want a garden is to
    completely enclose it in some way. In Yosemite, we built an arbor with
    lattice sides, gate and grew flowers and stuff in there. The roof was
    2" by 2" spaced where the light came through and in summer grew grapes
    up the sides.

    Get a dog, train him well & provide good outdoor shelter for him to
    remain outdoors 24/7... that will take care of the racoons too, as they
    climb fences.
