The Q&A Archives: what does a rabbit not eat?

Question: What can I plant in container garden that will live past the rabbits' appetite?

Answer: I don't think there's a list of plants that rabbits won't eat, but there are a number of animal repellent sprays that would help deter rabbits from eating your flowers. Try 'Get Away' or 'Deer Away'. Consider also interplanting your flowers with garlic, onions, Mexican marigold or Dusty Miller. Bunnies tend not to like their aroma. Also, you can make your own animal repellent mixture by mixing a few teaspoons of cayenne pepper, and a dash of soap in a quart of water. Spray on the plants you want to protect. Sprinkling blood meal, ground hot peppers or human or dog hair around plants is also sometimes effective. Hope this information helps!
