Height of deer fence?
In Woodstock, where I've just started a garden, deer are rampant. The first thing I did after laying out the garden was to put up a 6-foot deer fence. It's kept the deer out so far, but the proprietor of the local produce/garden stand told me yesterday he'd heard that a 7-foot fence was necessary.
Has anyone had deer jump a 6-foot fence? Should I plan on adding the extra foot of height? It seems every Hudson Valley gardener has a deer story, and after watching them chow down on the meadow grass, I don't want them to be eyeing my flowers for dessert!
