As a follow up to the best-selling book, Creating a Deer Proof Garden, author Peter Derano introduces his newest book: Creating a Deer & Rabbit Proof Garden. Now in its fourth edition and completely updated in 2015 it includes brand new deer proofing information and the addition of 50 Rabbit Plants, this book is the definitive deer & rabbit proofing book! This factual and informative book describes in an easy to read format, 159 deer & rabbit proof/resistant plants. It gives the average gardener all the information they need to create and plant a worry free garden. It includes 401 gorgeous, full color photographs. Frankly speaking, there is no outwitting these animals, they are highly adaptable and very astute in terms of finding food, especially in our gardens. Instead, I offer a combination of proven gardening techniques, tips, advice on the best repellents to use, what works and what does not work. Most importantly, my book provides a wide selection of plants, 159 in total, that will prove to be highly deer and/or rabbit resistant/proof. The book covers the entire plant gamut, excluding vegetables Evergreen trees and Shrubs Deciduous tree and Shrubs Perennials Annuals Vines Ground Covers Bulbs and Tubers It provides all the information gardeners need for planting success. The plant s ultimate height, spread, exposure needs (sun/shade, etc) and care tips. In addition, it suggests deer/rabbit resistant /proof plants for problem areas such as steep slopes, deep shade, acid soil, dry soil, etc. Also includes 2 deer/rabbit resistant garden designs one for sun gardens, the other for shade gardens. Finally, do not use outdated books or lists of deer proof plants. Most of the books in the market today are 4 -15 years old! Much has changed in the last 15 years in terms of deer and rabbit foraging /feeding habits. The deer and rabbit population has grown dramatically these last 15 years, creating an increase in feeding pressure on the herds and forces both deer and rabbits to feed on plants that were not touched by them years ago. This is a fact! Do not use outdated lists or outdated books as your guideline as you will only be disappointed! My book is updated every year to 1.5 years offering the very newest information.
