Strawberries and Rabbits - Knowledgebase Question

I'm planning to plant strawberries in a sunny bed next to our house. However, since I moved my lilies to this particular bed, the rabbits have feasted on them. Will rabbits be attracted to strawberry plants?

All I can think of is that silly cartoon rabbit that drinks strawberry flavored milk! I'm afraid they are known to munch on strawberry plants, too! But at least it's easier to protect the low-growing strawberries plants than your tall and elegant lilies. You'll probably have to construct a cover made of chicken wire that is well pinned at the edges (anchor edges with a plank or 2-by-4). If they can get through that, I wouldn't worry about your strawberries - I'd relocate! Best of luck!
