The only solution I know of (short of a fence) to keep rabbits from
eatingyour flowers is to plant things they don’t like to eat. Many herb
have very attractive flowers and the rabbits don’t like to eat them.Consider planting rosemary, catmint, sunflowers, thymes, vincas,
sage, Russian sage, Mexican bush sage, scented geraniums, passionflower,
California poppies, breadseed poppies, cilantro/coriander, dittany
of Crete,Jerusalem artichoke, caper, scarlet flax, evening primrose,
lavenders, coreopsis, daturas, and basils. All of these herbs havebeautiful
flowers, and the rabbits in my yard don’t eat them!
Try a combination of this-1 beaten egg, 1/4 cup hot spicy oil (found in the oriental food
section in the grocery store) and 1 cup water. Put into a 2 cup
spray bottle and shake until blended.Everyone in our area has trouble with yjr deer eating Hostas & most
garden flowers. This really works! My mom has also used it to keep
rabbits out of her garden. Its inexpensive and easy on theenvironment.
