Rabbits can cause a lot of damage and can be very persistent so here are some ideas: make a cage around the plants using wire mesh, spray homemade garlic and/or red pepper spray on the plants and repeat frequently, or use a commercial repellent spray such as "GetAway" brand Animal Repellent according to the label instructions. This one is available through Burpee (1-800-888-1447 or www.burpee.com ).
