Deer got my whole garden in the last six weeks ...
It took that long to finally find out where they were getting into the garden.
The heucheras were somewhat buried in leaves, but the deer got most of the plants. There is not one lateral left on any of the roses.
I finally found out where the deer were getting in after a particularly bad storm.
Some how they were jumping over the trash cans in the carport to a small area between a tall fence and an almost vertical slope. Then crossing over the base of the slope to a spot where they could get up and over a 3' fence at the top of the slope.
The lousy part is that we have had enough rain that there is plenty of forage for them outside of the garden .... including wild species roses.
The garden is a wreck and the soil is saturated so I can't work out there yet. At least the deer are not feasting in the garden every night any more.
I know. The heucheras and the roses will come back. I am just going to have to be patient.
