I don't know about 'nurse plants' but a lot of herbs seem to be deer resistant in my experience...greek oregano, garden thyme, lavender, rosemary, cilantro, lemon balm, mints, anise hyssop, feverfew, catnip, tansey, and more have survived the white tailed deer in our area and have low water needs. Most of these are from plant exchange divisions...the oregano, lavender, cilantro, feverfew and anise hyssop are from seed. I like your idea.

I thought what was meant was nurse plants for the herbs but deer resistant varieties of both...after reading the title and post together. Maybe it's already happened since the post was from May....I wonder if it worked?
 
Ruth Stout was famous for gardening naked. Just like this tiny ad:
