About 2 weeks ago, after a snowstorm, we were horrified when we discovered all of the damage the deer have been doing to our plantings around the house. OK, our shrubs are overgrown, but this was not the way to deal with that issue.
This holly and its two flanking arbor vitae are severely damaged. I think the holly might come back, but I know the bottoms of the arbor vitae are likely to be permanently destroyed. They've attacked 3 other holly bushes, too.
Boxwood is resilient, but this is disheartening. Both of the boxwood flanking my front door look like this.
Hope your plantings are in better shape than mine right now! Happy Garden Tuesday!
