What type of flowers can we plant that the deer will not eat? My aunt lives in Isabella county and is having trouble with the deer eating her flowers.

Hello,

Deer can be quite the nuisance in the garden. Surely after planting flowers it can be disheartening to see deer have eaten your beautiful flowers. To help minimize the damage deer can do, you can choose plants that are not desirable to them. You can find suitable plants at the links listed below.
