    Default Borage

    Does anyone know if borage is "deer-safe"? That is to say- will deer leave it alone while it is coming up and blooming? We have more deer than bees sometimes around here. One of our neighbors feeds them.

    Remember it is illegal to shoot deer with a gun at night.

    Deer are a big problem where I am. They eat any of my borage that is not protected by an electric fence.

    I have alot of deer around me and in two years of planting a large borage patch with no fence around it they have not touched it. I did have a baby rabbit that liked to each it though. Borage has a fuzzy, kind of prickly stem and leaves that deer don't like. John
