Deer munching on plants.

This hint won't work for hundreds of trees and shrubs but if your readers are having trouble with deer munching on tens of trees and shrubs, we have finally found a totally deer-proof solution, at least for winter feeding. We thought you might want to pass it on.

We had tried every repellent we had ever heard of and yet, the deer kept on munching. Finally, we went to the fabric shop and got a bolt of very inexpensive nylon net in a nice dark green color and wrapped the lower branches in late Fall. This is the second winter we have had no problem with deer and this past winter has been a real test, with significant snow throughout. We take the net off in Spring because we have no problem in warm weather.
