How exasperating! I, too, have had to deal with rabbits and I've tried everything. The only sure way of protecting your plants is to fence them in. Cylinders of hardware cloth or chicken wire, buried 6" deep and at least 2' high placed around each plant will keep the bunnies from nibbling. While the barriers don't look especially attractive, if you keep them in place long enough, the bunnies will eventually go elsewhere to dine. The cylinders also keep them from hiding under the bushes or living there which will also reduce the population. Wish I had other tips to share. Good luck with your garden.
