      The only solution I know of (short of a fence) to keep rabbits from

      eating

      your flowers is to plant things they don’t like to eat. Many herb

      plants

      have very attractive flowers and the rabbits don’t like to eat them.

      Consider planting rosemary, catmint, sunflowers, thymes, vincas,

      pineapple

      sage, Russian sage, Mexican bush sage, scented geraniums, passion

      flower,

      California poppies, breadseed poppies, cilantro/coriander, dittany

      of Crete,

      Jerusalem artichoke, caper, scarlet flax, evening primrose,

      hollyhocks,

      lavenders, coreopsis, daturas, and basils. All of these herbs have

      beautiful

      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 the

      environment.
