Deer Resistant plants

Do you have Deer in your yard? I do, my neighbor like to feed them! Yes they are beautiful animals, but they love plants. As gardeners we invest a lot of money to make our yards beautiful, so I am giving you a list plants that Deer do not like, I hope this helps. Deer typically dont like any plant that is part of the onion family such as onion, garlic, Allium, chives. They also dont like thorns, so bushes such as Roses, Barberry and Holly are good choices.
