Rabbits can sometimes be deterred by using the spray-on rabbit repellents from the garden center, be sure to read and follow the label directions. Red pepper wax can also be effective, again follow the label. Fencing them out of the garden will also work as a long term solution. The fence needs to be wire mesh and should extend outward flat under the soil surface for a foot or two to deter them digging in under it. I hope this helps.
