Présentation de l'éditeur

Keeping your beautiful garden safe from deer is as simple as choosing the right plants. In 50 Beautiful Deer-Resistant Plants, gardening expert Ruth Rogers Clausen introduces the most versatile and drool-worthy options: white snowdrops that bloom in the spring; shade-loving, electric gold hakone grass; long-blooming Texas sage in vibrant reds, peaches, and pinks; and the feathery foliage of Arkansas blue stars that glows golden in the autumn.

Illustrated throughout with full-color photographs of every plant, this inspiring guide offers everything a plant-lover with a deer problem needs to know. In addition to the 50 best annuals, perennials, bulbs, ferns, grasses, and shrubs — plus advice on how to grow them — Clausen includes dozens of deer-resistant companions and smart design tips for pulling it all together. And here's the best part: your gorgeous garden will be irresistible to everyone but those pesky deer.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A superior resource for homeowners on the east coast 10 juin 2011
Par Gen of North Coast Gardening - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
This book is a one-stop, simple resource for east coast homeowners who need hardy, easy-to-grow, deer-resistant plants that won't let them down. I love that the author has selected a wide variety of plants which all go together fairly well. It would be very hard to screw up a design scheme using the plants in this book. Most have a cottage garden appearance, with lots of flowers and color, but of course style is largely in the layout and design, so you could create a variety of differently-styled gardens using only the plants she suggests.

I love that for each plant, she gives a detailed set of companion plants that flower harmoniously or have great foliage contrast. This makes it easy for more experienced gardeners to use a wider palette of plants, since for each plant, she gives around 10 suggestions for other plants to use alongside it. This means that the book features many more than 50 plants.

I'm a professional landscaper in the coastal Pacific Northwest, and the author is an east coast gardener, so a few of the plant suggestions did miss the mark for my climate. Some don't grow well with the rain, fog, or lack of frost on the coast (peony, basil, lily of the valley), and others become thuggish in my generally hospitable climate (ostrich fern, bigroot geranium).

That said, no gardening book will have plants to suit every microclimate, even those that are specifically for your state or region. I'm a big proponent of using books like this as a starting point for getting ideas, then going to your local nursery, talking with friends or your local garden club, or having a consultation with a landscape designer/ garden coach to weed out any plants likely to be underwhelming or problematic in your climate.

Overall, I'd give this book an enthusiastic 5 stars for east coast gardeners, and 4 stars for people on the coast or in the rainy Pacific Northwest. The encouraging tone and creative design suggestions for each plant make this a standout book for homeowners looking for effective "what do I plant?" advice.

50 Beautiful Deer-Resistant Plants: The Prettiest Annuals, Perennials, Bulbs, and Shrubs that Deer Don't Eat
Gardeners who live in deer country have a serious layer of complexity to work through when planning their landscapes: - Hungry deer will ultimately eat much of what they plant. Some are prepared to invest in fences that protect their plants from becoming Bambi brunch, while many prefer not to spend funds on such structures, or to invest in the necessary time to install them. As well, applying environmentally friendly products with deer-deterring odors can be both costly and labor-intensive because rain will wash away such products thus requiring repeated applications.

From time to time, many garden writers will publish articles about plants that deer avoid, however that information is usually insufficient. Knowing what deer will or will not eat, might ensure that a garden will not become a cafeteria, but that knowledge is incomplete when it does not address beauty and the elements of garden design.

It's no secret that planning a beautiful deer-resistant garden is tedious work. Every time we select a plant or include our favorite perennial, we are obliged first to do research to determine if it is deer-candy. How exciting that now we have a list of beautiful, deer-resistant plants, conveniently tucked into a sumptuously illustrated handbook, [Mr. Detrick's photographs are awesome]. As the subtitle suggests, this publication is about the prettiest annuals, perennials, bulbs, and shrubs. That list also includes herbs, ferns, and ornamental grasses. Think of all of the time liberated by not having to research our preferences before we plan our garden.

Some of the very wise suggestions that the author has also incorporated into this book are

- the planting of natural barriers that are unpalatable to deer,

- how berms and terraces create a physically unwelcome-to-deer environment ,

- cultural techniques that make otherwise tasty deer food unappetizing,

- a list of plants that deer love that must be excluded from the garden .

Since this is a book essentially about beauty, the author supplies design tips that enhance the appearance of the recommended plants. That is precisely the information we need to create attractive gardens with a restricted collection of perennials, shrubs and trees. This knowledge helps us to distinguish between the planting of a perfunctory landscape and the creation of a beautiful garden.

Again, because this is a book about beauty, it is worth mentioning that the graphic design for this publication is a work of art that reinforces the tactile and visual pleasures associated with handling the hard copy of a "real" book. Thanks, Timber Press. You've done it again.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Misplaced Illustrations 24 avril 2013

I would've preferred pictures of the plant to be on the same page as the description. I like to see what I'm reading about first, not 2 pages after the information has been given. Not the author's fault by no means, but, just too bad the deer, just as humans, enjoy the more colorful flowers and plants, thus limiting the beauty of the illustrations. I did like that detailed information was given about the plants, ie, castor oil plant is poisonous and to the deers habits, likes and dislikes. Good info all the way around and intend on putting some of it to use soon.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 I hate deer 26 avril 2012

Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
I bought this book due to the frustration of having deer going to town on various plants in my yard. Its only been a few weeks, so I cannot fully attest to the accuracy of the recommendations, but there have been no deer eating (yet) the recommended plants Ive chosen so far.

The book is well-written and the photographs are great, so its been a pleasure to read.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 great book - very helpful!! 30 avril 2013

Really love all the opinions about using deer resistant plants to create a nice garden. Also, valuable is the rating system for deer resistance and the explanation that during certain times not all plants are deer resistant. My backyard is adjacent to a large wooded area and we do have a large amount of deer present. My 100 lb labrador patrolling the back yard also helps a lot with deer control!! :)
