Rabbit Proof Plants

Rabbit Proof Plants

Rabbits are real pests . The UC Davis site for Integrated Pest Management recommends exclusion, trapping and repellents, in that order. Since most people have tried all these methods, plants that are not generally eaten by the rabbits are the next step. This may be different in your neighborhood, as rabbit tastes differ from family to family. In my experience, rabbits tend to stay away from plants with a strong scent.
