Keep your plants bunny-free!
FENCING is the most effective way of keeping rabbits away from garden plants but if this isn’t possible, the options are to protect individual young plants with a homemade tree-guard or apply a deterrent spray such as Grazers, which will make leaves and stems unpalatable.
Create guards using a hoop of chicken wire pinned in situ with bamboo canes, and leave in place around trees and shrubs until the plant develops thicker bark – as then, the rabbits tend to leave it alone. You can often tell when a shrub is safe, as the bark goes grey or develops a rough texture.
