Re: H. serrata, now deer


Well, having raised deer myself....I know they love the steady supply of grain...BUT...by nature...they need green stuff and love, love, love the leaves of trees. Whenever we chop down tree limbs or anything with leaves on it...I take it down to the deer. If you did that around the deer feeder (fed them leaves too) then they might leave your gardens alone. Just a thought. It's cheaper than building a fence and having to keep re-buying plants!!!
