RE: deer resistant plants
In our gated Manhattan garden our problem is mostly cats and rats (
sometimes larger than the cats!) Fortunately the cats manage to keep the rat
population down in most cases. The last deer I saw in these parts was
strapped to the hood of a cop's car last fall. However, we still asked him
if it took him 41 shots and if the buck was in a doorway vestibule. He asked
us if we wanted any live deer in our vegetable gardens.He's a neighbor and a
good guy ( even helped us give out rose plants last year at our Citywide
Summer Solstice Celebration ( see our website at
http://www.clintoncommunitygarden.org.) Another story of peaceful
co-existence that never gets in the papers...
Anyway, here are some links:
Check the on line catalog below for the book "Gardening in Deer Country" by
Vincent Drzewucki, which retails for about $9.95.
I don't know the chemical breakdown of this company's products so I'm not
sure if they're appropriate for organic gardeners:
