What's the biggest problem facing gardeners? Drought, lack of sun, or the ever-present threat of disease? Nope, it's deer. The beautiful animals immortalized in Disney's Bambi are also the garden's biggest pests. Increased hunting regulations have caused the deer population to swell to more than 30 million. At the same time, suburban expansion has led to a loss of natural habitat. The result? Deer are looking for food and finding it in gardens all across the country. 50 Beautiful Deer-Resistant Plants makes keeping deer away as simple as choosing the appropriate plant. Instead of the typical barriers and fencing, expert plantswoman Ruth Rogers Clausen has chosen the 50 most beautiful (and least palatable) annuals, bulbs, ferns, grasses, herbs, perennials, and shrubs. Whether it's the charming snow crocuses that bloom each spring or the vibrant, long-blooming Texas Sage, these 50 plants provide gardeners a chance to design a deer-proof garden without sacrificing style. Each plant profile includes a deer-resistance scale, tips on growth and care, zone recommendations, and gorgeous color photos showing the plant up close and in the garden setting. Also includes dozens of companion planting ideas. With the helpful and trusted advice in 50 Beautiful Deer-Resistant Plants, gardeners can finally garden without fear of deer.

Finally a gardener's book on the subject of deer!

This really is a life saver if you live in an area plagued by deer. I love to see the beautiful creatures but not when I take a closer look and they are destroying my garden! This book has a huge variety of flowers and shrubs so that you needn't feel like you have no choice anymore. It also gives a good explanation of what plants go together and how to layout your garden for greatest impact. Most of the flowers are colorful and remind me of an English Cottage Garden but of course the look massively depends on the garden's layout. Alan also goes further into the subject by giving ideas on how to create a physical barrier between the deer and your garden. I am so happy to have found this book, I can now finally relax in my own house.
