There are a number of repellants on the market. Some gardeners report great success with is a product called Deer Away. There are several versions and different brands and it can be found at any garden supply store. These products use animal essences from predatory animals and other essences that deer associate with being dangerous or unpleasant. You apply the product to the plants being munched on and it lasts for about a week or until it rains. Don?t forget to reapply after a rain. Hope this helps save your rose bush!
