I am 3 years into developing a shade garden with many varieties of hostas. Up until July of this year I was able to keep the deer damage to a minimum. But several weeks ago a momma deer and her twins used my garden as a giant salad bar. They ate the leaves off almost every plant. All I have left are stems. My question is will these plants be able to survive now that it is almost fall and they possibly have not been able to store energy because their leaves are gone. Should I feed them or will it cause more problems? Any advise would be appreciated!
