Re: H. serrata, now deer

I know you'll think I'm crazy..but if you can' t beat 'em...join 'em. My neighbors had that problem and they went and got a deer feeder and set it off to the side of their property. After that, they left most of the gardens alone. Just a thought. That's got to be a heart breaker...to put in that much work only to have it munched on.

It is time to get hints from you who are battling them - on deer deterrents and plants unappetizing to those beasts. I am about to go into serious depression. Each night they destroy my shady area a bit more...in a week, I will have nothing left. A deer fence is not an option because they would simply go around it from my neighbor's property. (and I have 2.5 acres.

'Limelight' - guess we'll have to devise some sort of enclosure for it
to discourage them.  Doubt I'll get any blooms this year, tho. :(
