You can try using the repellants such as Deer Away and Ropel. These are nasty tasting compounds that usually keep deer and other critters from grazing after they've had a taste. Aside from these compounds, the only thing really successful is caging your most vulnerable plants. Caging with chicken wire doesn't make the landscape very attractive but at least you can enjoy looking at the flowers through the wire. Wish I had more solutions to share. Best wishes with your garden.
