There are many of you who ask what are good choices for my yard that are deer resistant. So, to make it a bit easier to make your choices, we have compiled a list of plants that are known to be deer resistant. This does not mean that they are deer proof though. Deer are natural foragers and will eat whatever they can when their food sources become depleted. They have been known to nibble at the new growth of plants they normally won’t touch. We hope this list helps. If you still have questions, feel free to call the nursery and we will be more than happy to help you.
