The Q&A Archives: What plants can I plant that the animals (rabbits, deer, racoon etc.) wont eat!

Question: What plants can I plant in a raised bed that local animals wont eat? I have a lot of deer, raccoon and rabbits in the area and they eat everything so far!
Thank you for a response!

Answer: Arlene,

Rabbits can be kept out by a low fence or a couple of low electric wires with a charger used to keep pets in or out. Deer are a more complicated story. Check out the following web site for more info on dealing with these animals in the landscape:

Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
