|Young bucks, in the wildflowers last summer|
|Lavender is distasteful to deer but so useful, fragrant and beautiful to us|
|Dwarf Greek Oregano and other small leaf varieties are left alone by deer|
|Rosemary in bloom. The bees sure love it but the deer do not.|
|Rhubarb has toxic leaves. They are occasionally tasted, but nothing more.|
|Dill and fennel grow big and bushy and show no pressure from deer|
oregano and marjoram (smaller leaf varieties)
|Calendula has been of no interest to the deer. This one still surprises me.|
Part of my goal for this post was to offer some of our experience to those of you who have similar challenges, but also to see if there might be some of you that have learned some things about deer resistant gardening that you could share.
We will be working on adding to this list this year. If you have anything to add, I would love to hear! With what I've learned so far, I have a better sense of what deer like and what they don't, and am looking forward to experimenting with some new herbs this spring and summer.
