Rabbits tend not to like plants with fuzzy leaves. Try lavender, Lamb's Ear, dusty miller or rose campion around your garden. If all else fails, you may need to fence your garden. Chicken wire about 3' tall and buried about 6" into the ground should keep the bunnies out of your garden. Best wishes with your veggie garden!
