The Q&A Archives: Rabbits

Question: How do I keep Rabbits from eating my tulips bulbs and buds?
Also how do I keep Rabbits from eating my Hosta leaves?
I have tried moth balls and I then can't appreciate the flowers natural fragrance, also the rabbit pellets and baby powder nothing has worked.

Answer: Rabbits can be bold and often ignore scare tactics and nasty smells. The only sure way to keep them from munching on your garden plants is to create physical barriers. I use cylinders of chicken wire around my prized plants. I've found that by mid-summer the bunnies go elsewhere to feed (because there is nothing yummy in my yard that they can access). At that time I remove the protective cylinders. Maybe this tactic will work for you.
