Skip Laurel -- Deer food?

5 years ago

Hi all

So, my first winter with my Skip Laurels in NJ. We were away for a week, and I noticed that the leaves were droopy and one looked like it was a bit more bare than I recalled.

Next day, I look outside and I see three deer munching on one particular Skip.

I could have sworn that I read that Skip Laurel were deer resistant. They really went to town on that particular plant (one of 5). Should I do anything at this point (spray? sprinkle deer deterent?) or just wait for spring?

Ground is frozen by now, so fence isnt an option...
