Does anyone know if deer like this plant? I checked an extension list and didn't see it. Deer don't usually like plants with strong fragrance so I am hoping.

I don't know about summersweet but it is true that deer don't normally like strong smelling plants. Do you have enough to try a small piece to see what happens? That way, if they eat up the sample, you will still have some to put where it's safe.

Are there any plants that discourage snakes? If not, any other ideas? Carol7 35 Aug 23, 2007 12:37 AM
