Deer can be pesky problems in the home garden. They often munch and enjoy a gardener’s prized plants, damaging entire gardens in the process. If you have problems with deer, consider growing plants that are considered deer resistant. These plants tend to be bitter, spicy or have a strong aroma. Deer also avoid plants that are prickly and tough. In the Northeast, there are many plants to grow in your garden that are rarely or are seldom damaged by deer.
