The Q&A Archives: Rabbit repellant

Question: Are there any plants that I can put on the perimeter of my garden to repel rabbits? The garden is in a raised space ( about 2 feet )and putting up a fence would be impractical as well as unslightly. Thank-you.

Answer: Consider strong-smelling plants such as garlic, onions, marigold or artemesia. Bunnies tend not to like their aroma. Rough, scratchy, spiky, thorny foliage is also less palatable. However, if animals are hungry enough, the only surefire way to keep them out is with fencing. Good luck!
