As Colleen inferred, my plantings are designed with Bambi in mind. I've had to deal a few times with our neighbor's cows and horses wandering into our yard. Fences are in place, but stock seem to be smart enough to get over or through or around gates and fencing. But the deer are always a nuisance. They damage fruit trees, nibble on the evergreens, pull up succulents (and drop them because they figure out that they don't taste good), and munch on the mums just as the flowers begin to open. I have a high fence around the vegetable/perennial garden. It's a 5' field fence with 2 rows of barbed wire above. I've put in 10' t stakes – I have to use a step ladder to reach up with the post driver. Not one of my favorite chores.
I have fencing around the orchard that I hope to improve on this summer. Fencing cages around individual trees, a climbing rose (a favorite of deer), around bushes and so on. It doesn't enhance the beauty of the place, but it's a necessary evil. I found that they don't like rosa rugosa, iris,daffodils, peonies, Oregon grape, juniper and leave blue fescue alone. Until I moved into deer habitat I always had roses.
Anyone who thinks that deer are cute, as I used to, doesn't have them bedding down in their yard.
I got a Gurney's nursery catalog today, and I guess that if I want very many things I might have to order through online nurseries. I'd normally get my vegetable and annual starts from a greenhouse down the road, and I might give them a call to see what their plans are. I always plant vegetables on Memorial Day weekend, hopefully after the last frost.
Happy gardening, everyone. It will be even more therapeutic than usual for me this year, in the throes of the pandemic.
