Essential Deer-Resistant Perennials for Outstanding Gardens

Deer have become the bane of countless gardeners across the country. Is it possible to have a lovely garden without expensive fencing to keep deer out –or is that fencing the gardener in? This illustrated talk addresses this question and focuses on perennials that deer find mostly unpalatable, as well as tips for gardening in deer country. Our speaker
Ruth Rogers Clausen was trained in horticulture at Studley College in England, and received her MS in Botany from Kent State University, Ohio. In 1973 she moved to the New York Botanical Garden to head up the School of Professional Horticulture. Since 1976 she has freelanced as a teacher, lecturer, and author in the US and Canada. In 1989 she co-authored Perennials for American Gardens with the late Nicolas Ekstrom, in 1990 it was awarded the Quill & Trowel award from the Garden Writers of America Association. She has written for The American Garden Guides: Perennial Gardening with The New York Botanical Garden, 1994; Annual Gardening with Missouri Botanical Garden, 1995; Trees with Chicago Botanic Garden, 1996. Hearst Books published Dreamscaping in 2001. Her book about successful gardening in deer country: 50 Beautiful Deer-Resistant Plants, from Timber Press was published in spring 2011 and is currently in its 6th printing. Her latest book with Thomas Christopher: Essential Perennials, was released by Timber Press in 2015.
