Answer: Unfortunately there is no tried and true list because deer seem to learn to expand their tastes to plants that are available in their area. So for example plants they have not learned to eat in California may be at the top of the preference list in New York! In my experience the only truly reliable solution is a fence, although some gardeners report success using either home made pepper and/or garlic based or commercial repellents. However, you could also talk to your new neighbors and local garden center staff and find out what the local deer seem to prefer and avoid those plants. Good luck!
