Cave them and let them grow outside of the cage for the deer to browse what's outside and not destroy the main part of the plant. You mite have to build a pretty good size cage and let it grow.. On my to do list this spring and that's what I planned on doing.

Cage the main part of the plant and let the branches grow through the caging for the deer
