A few years ago my veg garden was destroyed by deer, OH put a high fence around it, which solved that problem. But next thing was that all my flowers were nipped off and all the roses and new rose shoots were eaten in the bit of garden behind the house which had never had deer damage. They'd been in the lower bit and I'd removed all the roses and put them in pots around the house. But the deer started coming right up to the house and ate all the pansies in the pots on the terrace. OH then fenced the main flower garden behind the house, which is terraced, on a slope, quite a job.
It worked and I have my flower garden back. I'd tried other things before the fence, none of which worked, like anti deer spray on leaves, anti-deer pellets that smelt horrid, a flood light with a sensor.
