It hasn’t gotten too hot yet here in the South. I’m trying to hurry along and get some perennials in the ground before the long, hot days of summer arrive. The heat can put too much stress on a new plant, so I need to get it done now.

I’ve got a few different areas in my yard with bald spots, some in full sun and others in deep shade. But the first thing I must consider when picking plants is whether or not they’re deer resistant. I love having wildlife in my area, and deer are pretty to look at, I just wish they’d stay out of my garden.
I found this batch of articles listed below to be very handy. I crossed referenced them to the website of a semi-local nursery and DeerFriendly.com which lists deer-resistant plants and trees for every state. If you have the same issue of garden-poaching deer, it’s a good place to start.
