How do I deter deer from eating my entire garden? Are there any plants that they don't like?

I live in rural Somerset, ENGLAND. The deer have eaten my roses, pansies, spring onions, and my hedge of escallonia which is now dying. They will shortly be enjoying strawberries, courgette flowers, tomatoes and lettuces. Is there anything that I can plant that they will not eat?



Honest answer? Nothing... only a high fence will keep them out.

Oh and you say you live in Somerset but when I hover over your icon I see the American flag?

I am also confused Moon-grower... but if you are in the US, the only sure ways are a tall fence or a big dog or both!

There are several places called Somerset in the USA.
