Deer-resistant plants is a very common topic in Wisconsin, especially in the fall. It’s often an initial question on new landscape projects of all sizes. Deer-resistant, repellent, deterrent, and deer-proof can all be used synonymously with the topic. Ultimately, fencing is the BEST way to protect your plant(s).
To give you an idea of scale, all our farms in various locations (700+ acres of farmland) are surrounded by 8′ high deer fencing. But once the plants are out of our care and into your landscape, how can you protect them?
As the Wisconsin DNR recognizes Wisconsin as one of the premier white-tailed deer hunting states, it’s no secret that deer are prevalent here and around the Midwest. The DNR offers some great resources on deer management and population statistics, down the county level.
How does this relate to your new plants?
