Lat year we planted several plants/trees. They are growing wonderful; however, in the last couple of days, two of the plants (an asalyea (sp?) and rodadendrum (sp?) have been eaten by deer. What is a good deer replenant that will not harm the deer.

You could try the commercial repellents which smell/taste bad to deer, or try a homemade one based on garlic and/or pepper. Some gardeners report success using soap (Irish Spring bars) hung from trees. You could also try caging off the plants with wire mesh. In my own sad experience, the only really reliable long term solution is a very tall fence.
