How can you keep deer from eating your plants?
Gardeners have several options when attempting to preserve their gardens in areas where hungry deer live and forage for food. Indeed, deer will eat almost anything -- and in your garden, will have their own priority of favourite plants. Physical barriers include sturdy fencing: see-through fencing allows you to enjoy the garden while keeping the deer away from the blooms. Electrifying it may help deter animals. Scent barriers: local nurseries can sell you products you can spray on your garden that will 'minimize' your garden's attractiveness to hungry deer -- but none are guaranteed to keep the hungry animals at bay. Your final option is to plant botany that the deer won't eat, except in times of near starvation. You can follow the link, below, and discover a strategy that may -- with modification for your locale -- help you minimize deer damage in your garden.

Can deer eat poison ivy?
yes deer can eat posion ivy. Actually, if you want to poison deer and keep your garden green and not stripped clean of new growth, fruit, and the mellons you have planted. do this; buy some deer corn and grind it into "cracked corn" then add some ground up CASTOR BEANS to the feed. Castor Beans Retcin are poisonious--even the leaves are toxic. Depending on the size of the animal, it may take a week before you start seeing stumbling and slow moving deer. the larger the animal, the more it takes----they keep on eating the stuff tho--deer are not the brightest animals in the forrest. Smaller deer, fawns and up to six months will usually drop by the roadside within days. Keep your fruit away from the toxic castor plants and you will have a protected garden!!
