    Do deer like lemongrass?

    The deer are always trekking through my property. I want to grow lemongrass as a product to sell locally, but I don't want to attract deer to the property. Are deer attracted to lemongrass?

    Hi Marlene,
    Lemon grass is considered to be deer resistant; however there is never a guarantee they won't eat it if hungry enough. I'd give it a try!

      Thank you, cat on a soapbox. I just started growing lemongrass and then started wondering about the deer. I hope they have plenty of other things to eat besides my lemongrass.

    Chicken wire or any similar netting will work very well for keeping the deer away from your garden

      Thank you, CarteDuJourFarms. Using chicken wire as netting is a great idea.
