Rabbits are eating my bean plants. Nasturtiums are good for ridding certain pests. Do you know if they, or what else would get rid of the little critters?

Unfortunately, in my experience, the best prevention is a fence. However, some gardeners report that chives, onions, and garlic plants will repel rabbits. Others have had success using the repellent sprays based on garlic and/or red pepper or the commercial products sprayed on the plants. Still other gardeners report that a pet dog or cat on patrol can be helpful in deterring the bunnies.
