Many people who have outdoor gardens have probably run into the problem of animals nibbling here and there on their plants and flowers. While some of these smaller creatures can often be deterred, larger animal like deer, can be a bit more difficult to keep away. The common White-Tailed Deer that is found in Georgia is known for eating just about anything that grows from the ground (grass, clovers, leaves, nuts, etc.); however, certain plants can deter it’s appetite and make it move along quicker. Just remember, if a deer is hungry enough it will still try to eat the following deer resistant plants.
