Description - Gardening in Deer Country by Vincent Drzewucki
Deer -- you love them or you hate them, but deer have an appetite for delicious plants we plant in our garden and around out home. Youve seen residue in the morning: spiked hostas, chomped impatiens, mangled hydrangea. How can an animal that cute be so hungry? Fences and sprays and dogs do not go far enough and most people stop short of venison surprise for dinner. What is a serious gardener to do? This book answers this question by presenting descriptions of trees, shrubs, annuals, perennials, ground covers, herbs, bulbs and vines that deer do not like to eat. Drzewucki presents over 130 detailed plant descriptions including size, texture, habit, culture and hardiness for each plant with accompanying illustrations showing full size, flower and stem. An additional 100 plants are included in a list, rated by their level of deer attractiveness from "best" to "forget it". The 23 page introduction discusses the problems, possible solutions and planting techniques that every gardener who lives with deer should know.
