Looking for Deer Resistant Plants?
by Margarete Hasserodt

Gardeners realize that no plant is completely deer proof and are constantly looking for advise that will help them select plants, trees, shrubs, etc., resist-ant to deer damage. Rutgers University Extension has developed a list you can check out online at www.rce.rutgers.edu/deerresistance (click on Lawn & Garden). With input from nursery and landscape professionals, Northern New Jersey Master Gardeners and extension staff, more than 500 plants were rated on how attractive they are to deer. Rating categories range from: rarely damaged, seldom severely, and occasionally severely damaged. This guide can help keep your garden looking good.
