Protect Your Plants - Part II

A second line of protection is fencing. Most of us have no interest in surrounding our property with 7-foot or higher fences. Instead, fence the plants most likely to be eaten. Use the plastic mesh that has replaced chicken wire in gardening to invisibly wrap evergreens from the ground up to about 6 feet. The plant is not harmed and the deer cannot eat through the mesh. Why not use burlap? Wrapping evergreens in burlap limits sunlight getting to the live greens and can harm the plant.
