"Hello, the plants have arrived in excellent condition -- so carefully and lovingly packaged. They have been planted and watered and I thank you! Hopefully they will be happy here."  – FS

 
         
 

 

 

This site will help you with the three most effective ways to keep deer from eating your plants:  deer-resistant plants, deer repellents and deer fencing.

Since 1997, I've tested hundreds of varieties of perennials and shrubs. My Deer-resistant Landscape Nursery plants are open to browsing by the neighborhood herd. Because the deer have access to a large quantity of each variety, I am able to note the difference between their occasional test bite versus their devouring all the plants of a certain variety. Frequently, the devoured varieties appear on other lists of "resistant plants," but they do not appear here. This may be one of the best-tested lists of deer resistent flowers on the internet.

While no plant is deer proof, these are some of my favorites that the deer will not eat: berberis, digitalis, helleborus, hellebores, asclepias, achillea, aconitum, alchemilla, artemisia, buddleia, buxus, carex, epimedium, euphorbia, ferns, some geraniums, miscanthus and other ornamental grasses, lamium, lavandula, narcissus, nepeta, perovskia, potentilla, salvia, siberian iris, stachys, thymus, verbascum.

You can also protect your landscaping or garden with 7-1/2 or 8-foot-tall deer fence. The nearly invisible mesh barrier is easy to install as a do-it-yourself project. Stronger than netting, this polypropylene mesh fencing is the ideal barrier and makes your garden essentially deer proof.

How to protect those non-resistant plants you can't live without?  With discount Deer Off, Plantskydd and I Must Garden repellents. These natural, organic repellents effectively repel for a month or more so you enjoy your favorite flowers even while deer roam your yard.

For more solutions to your deer problem, check these books at discount prices: ‘Deer Proofing Your Yard and Garden’ and ‘Deer in My Garden.’ Buy online anytime.

So what is the best way to keep deer from browsing your garden?  I use a combination of all three – a fenced-in cutting and vegetable garden, deer-resistant plants around the house and deer repellents on my wife's pansies and tulips.

Want to allow your pet cat some freedom to be outdoors?  My high-volume sales of Deer Fencing allows me to offer you Cat Fencing at a low cost by using many of the same materials in it as in the Deer Fencing.
