› Deer seem to think my hy­drangeas are for their din­ing plea­sure! Will my plants re­cover from be­ing their main course? —SU­SAN

» Deer rel­ish all kinds of hy­drangeas and will mow them to the ground if they can. Two ways to pre­vent the slaugh­ter are to ei­ther sur­round the plants with wire cages or spray them ac­cord­ing to la­bel di­rec­tions with a deer re­pel­lent such as Bobbex, Liq­uid Fence, or Deer Off. The munched hy­drangeas will grow back if given the chance.
