Bunnies are so cute, but they are also very destructive! There are a number of animal repellent sprays that will help deter rabbits from eating the flowers. Try 'Get Away' or 'Deer Away'. These won't poison the rabbits but they have a nasty, nasty taste and usually one bite is all the rabbits need to send them scampering away. Or you can put up a fence as a physical barrier. To be most effective, a 1" chicken wire fence needs to be 2 feet high and buried at least 6 inches deep around your flowers. I just make cylinders out of the chicken wire and secure them to the ground with metal staples I make out of bent coathangers. Hope this helps!
