WANTED: Any deer res shrubs/plants to grow as fence

purplelotusOctober 29, 2009

hi

I am looking for any plant shrub/tree/anything I can put on the edge on the green belt, that is deer resistant and that would grow in not so good soil. I think it is clay where I am trying to grow them. I planted some Arborvitae that haven't grown much.

I am going to update my Have list in a day or two.

I have some Sitka spruce trees that are darn near deer-proof. Their needles are sharp and discourage browsing. They would make an almost impenetrable fence. I also have salal, a native ground cover that has leathery leaves that the deer find unpalatable. Salal grows tall in the sun but stays low in the shade. It can be pruned as a hedge.

You could also try hawthorne. They will nibble the young shoots, but eventually the older thorny wood will lose its charm and they can make a dreadfully good fence. Hemmed the allies in at Normandy beach during WW2 for a while.
