|@davidsonshar Live trapping is an option, but it is not recommended that the homeowner do it him/herself. Rabitts will scratch the heck out of you and can carry disease. Because rabbits are considered agricultural pests in many states there are often laws that regulate where and how you can release them and you will be responsible for releasing them if you use this method.
Organic repellents can be applied around your hosta but these can create an unpleasant odor if it's near your home you may not like it. Repellents often work only for a short time and need to be reapplied frequently.
Here is a good article on how to make homemade organic repellents and other ways of keeping rabbits away from your plants.

|A fence just a couple of feet high (with relatively small openings) will keep them out.

|Sharon, I have had good luck with a product called PlantSkydd, its fairly long lasting, but most definitely has a bad smell, make sure you are up wind when applying
Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.
