All I can say is that my little vegetable garden has been surrounded by a 4 ft chain link fence for the past 16+ years, and I have never had Bambi invade it. I have had deer munch their way through the perennial beds next to it, which are not fenced.

That's interesting, Cathy. So, if one turned one's yard into a maze of hedges
and fences, one might foil Bambi? It's an interesting idea.

Not if you have a small plot. Deer will not jump into a place they think
they cannot get out of. My vegetable garden - 17x8 feet - has a 4 ft fence around it. Have never had deer damage there, even though the perennial beds next to it have had definite predation, and there is a definite deer path
through the back of my yard.

Will have to be a high fence as they can really leap.

I have planted dwarf yaupons, sago palms, varigated ginger, foxtail
ferns and plumbago. I want to plant lots of rosemary and lavender. They talked about split leaf philodendron being a great plant for here that the deer dont bother. We have a lot of live oak trees so there is more shade and partial shade. I have 3 hibiscus and a meyer lemon tree that I have in pots. I have to roll them in and out of the garage right now. Even if I leave them on the back porch the deer will get brave enough to come defoliate them every once in a while. I really need to give them to
someone that has a fenced in area.

I love Downton Abby too.
I have the digital addition for the Texas Gardner magazine and sometimes forget to check it out but this month they sent me a reminder. Suzanne
Labry is my step sister and never brags ( or tells me when she has
written an article) but they are all great.

Now that we live in Rockport, Tx we have so many deer that I am not sure how much gardening I am going to be able to do. The previous owner told me that they had the yard professionally landscaped 2 times and both times the deer ate everything. I went to talk at the Extension center yesterday and the Master Gardners here are very good at getting good information out about how to plant things the deer won t eat, but with
the drought they still might eat it.

So much to learn and plants to find.

I just read a great article on Key hole gardening, by Suzanne Labry in
the Texas Gardener. Have any of you heard about it? It sounds
wonderful.

Things melting here, but with the ground still frozen, expect
flooding
sooner or later. Sounds like winter isn't finished with us yet,
either.
The bulbs I planted this fall are probably mush. Oh well.....

Hey everyone!

It looks like Auralie's email was hacked -- don't answer this email
and send money. :)

In gardening news, how is everyone holding up with the cold and
snow?
We're finally getting a few days of warmth that might actually melt
the snow here. I'm hoping.
