Wild deer are increasingly being seen in urban areas, with species such as Muntjac and Sika deer expanding their range. When they stray into gardens they are known to strip flowers and foliage, and nibble tree bark.
The Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) is calling on the public to report damage to garden plants from deer. They want to produce a new list of plants that appear to be resistant to attack from the wild animals.View News Archive
