I have a little rabbit that loves to eat my plants! I've tried things that might bother his nose - red pepper, etc. with no luck ! What do you suggest?

You can sometimes deter them with Ropel or Deer Away. Both taste nasty and will keep a rabbit from taking more than one bite - but if you have a population of rabbits, they will probably all try munching so your plants will not be any better off. I make cylinders out of chicken wire to protect my plants when they are small. Once the plants are larger, they are not as attractive to bunnies, and a little munching won't hurt the plants. Why not try this with your favorite plants?
