The Q&A Archives: rabbits eating plants

Question: Is there something I can put on my new potato vines to keep the rabbits from eating them? And if they have eaten some of the leaves already will they grow back?

Answer: The Easter bunny's in your garden heh? Well, they like to munch on almost any tender new plant. Once a plant is older, they'll leave it alone. So the key is to protect young tender plants with row covers, repellents and barriers such as chicken wire fences. Your plants will probably recover if they've lost only leaves and not stems. Try a wire barrier until your potato vines grow up a little. Best wishes with your garden!
