Deer resistant plant sugg. (for Middle TN)??

17 years ago

Well, I finally became motivated to start my first garden bed here. I found someone to till the bed area next week. Ready to fight with the rocks and the clay, amend the soil, fight the bugs, etc.

My enthusiasm has been dampened by finding out that we have deer that regularly travel through the yards on our street. I knew there were some in the area, but I thought that since we don't have much wooded area near us they weren't going to be a problem.

I know there are many deer-resistant plant lists on the web, but none for this area (from what I can gather, deer-resistant plants in one state are deer dessert in another).

Any suggestions from personal experience would be very much appreciated!

The area I'm planting in is in full sun.
