Is there a product or other way to keep rabbits from eating mature dahlia plants or any plant for that matter?

There are some products you can purchase and spray on your plants to deter rabbits and they are often successful, but I've found the only sure way to keep them from munching my favorite plants are physical barriers. I use cylinders of chicken wire around my prized plants. I've found that by mid-July 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. Hope so!
