Deer-Resistant Plants

Those charming deer can certainly cause some problems in our gardens and landscapes.

By choosing plants that deer tend to avoid, and using products such as Liquid Fence® Deer & Rabbit Repellent, you can prevent damage to your favorite plants. There is a great article in the MDC's Missouri Conservationist magazine: http://mdc.mo.gov/conmag/2003/04/50.htm
