<![CDATA[Re: Garden Help]]> http://www.burpee.com/community/discussion/650/garden-help?commentid=1921 Don't get too excited. I found out when i planted my fruit trees, the deer would eat them, when they were small, and chew the wood branches down to stubs. Now, after about 7 years they are producing some fruits, but now it is coons. Last year both of my peach trees were ravaged by coons, they got in there and broke brqanches down and stripped it clean. So, just wanted you too be aware of that since you said you have woods surrounding you, like I do. So, it won't just be deer you will have to worry about. I took more drastic and permanent measures. People don't hunt like they used too in past years.

<![CDATA[Re: Garden Help]]> http://www.burpee.com/community/discussion/650/garden-help?commentid=1958 I know for young pine trees being planted out west, they used an egg and water mixture(mixed very well) and then put into a pump sprayer. The mixture will need to be thin enough to go through the nozzle. But spray on the tree, probably at least once a week. The eggs will start to smell and the deer will leave them alone. At least that is how they corrected the issue with pine trees.

<![CDATA[Re: Garden Help]]> http://www.burpee.com/community/discussion/650/garden-help?commentid=1974 You say you live in a small town, I also live in a small town and was bothered by the deer sampling everything until I bought a wolf hybrid.  The smell of her being out in the yard with me when I garden has run them off along with the gophers, rabbits the whole works. If you can find someone who owns one just get some of the dogs hair and hang it in some panty hose in the yard and when the wind blows so does the scent. My brother inlaw had racoons and other varmits causing problems and so he tried this and they are gone.
