Deer are not a serious garden problem here at present.  Still, three years
ago one got into our garden and of all the plants (including 200 different
hosta), the deer ate the leaves of only one plant.....and that was my wife's
favorite, Hosta plantaginea (the old 'August Lily').  We had been building up
plants of it for several years and the deer ate every leaf...did not touch
any other hosta, daylily or iris! My wife caught him dining! Clarence Mahan
