The Q&A Archives: How can I keep rabbit from eating my plants and flowers?

Question: We have a couple of wild rabbits in our yard and they are eating out hostas and all of our other perennials and annuals. HELP!

Answer: There are a number of animal repellent sprays that should help deter rabbits. Try 'Get Away' or 'Ropel'. 'Deer Away' is efffective in deterring deer and rabbits and lasts 7-10 dayswithout washing off. Natural scent repellents are also available such as fox and coyote urine. You could also try constructing a fence of 1-inch chicken wire, 2feet high and buried at least 6 inches deep. You might also consider interplanting your flowers with garlic, onions, Mexican marigold or dusty miller. Bunnies tend not to like their aroma. Hope this helps.
