Rabbits! - Knowledgebase Question

Is there any truly effective way to discourage rabbits from eating my flowers and burning bushes? I've tried the sprays, and they are not very effective.

Rabbits can be bold and often ignore scare tactics and nasty smells. The only sure way to keep them from munching on your garden plants is to create physical barriers. I use cylinders of chicken wire around my prized plants. I've found that by mid-summer 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.
