    DEER LAWN favourite plants

    Hi guys

    Anyone one got favourite plantings for a deer lawn, lupine, anemones I believe are supposed to be good to attract deer away from other domestic plantings to stop damage to gardens etc

    Any advice would be appreciated

    As previously posted willow whips are good and easy to strike, if for roe ivy and rasp/bramble are useful round the edges . Probably the best thing is to add nitrogen fert and keep the grass topped so it grows fresh leaving a rougher area round the edges.

    I'd suggest getting

    If you plant anything attractive near your garden it's just going to bring them in, unless that's what you want

And then he is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present; the result being that he does not live in the present or the future; he lives as if he is never going to die, and then dies having never really lived.”........Dalai Lama

    Trying to lure the deer away a very big garden to reduce damage to the flowers, there aren't that many deer there to cause concern, But there is some real damage to the larger bush plants

    Willow and lupines should grow ok together to start, there is a coppice a short distance away which I will make a clearing inside which has a natural damp area which should suit the willow and see what happens.

    Thanks guys appreciated
