Design a deer-unfriendly garden.
What’s the biggest problem facing gardeners? Drought, lack of sun, or the ever-present threat of disease? No, it’s deer. In recent years the deer population has swelled, making these animals the garden's biggest pests. Deer are looking for food and finding it in gardens all across the country. 50 Beautiful Deer-Resistant Plants makes keeping deer away as simple as choosing the appropriate plant. Instead of the typical barriers and fencing, expert plantswoman Ruth Rogers Clausen has chosen the 50 most beautiful (and least palatable) annuals, bulbs, ferns, grasses, herbs, perennials, and shrubs. These 50 plants provide gardeners a chance to design a deer-proof garden without sacrificing style. Each plant profile includes a deer-resistance scale, tips on growth and care, zone recommendations, and gorgeous colour photos showing the plant up close and in the garden setting. With the helpful and trusted advice in 50 Beautiful Deer-Resistant Plants, gardeners can finally garden without fear of deer.
