How annoying! Rabbits can damage vegetables, flowers and trees anytime of year, but seem especially active in the spring. The best way to keep rabbits out of a garden is to erect a chicken wire fence, or make cylinder cages out of hardware cloth to put around your plants. These barriers need to be sunk 3-4 inches into the soil or the bunnies will just go under them, and the barrier should be about 18" high so the bunnies won't jump over it. Wish there were an easier way to protect your veggies!
