RABBIT RESISTANT PLANTS

 

Rabbits are unpredictable and sometimes eat all types of plants – even plants on this list! Most of the time, the plants on this list are ignored by rabbits as are most highly aromatic plants. You may have to experiment with different types of plants at different times of the year.

 CONTROLLING RABBITS

 

Fencing may help control rabbits from eating any plants not on this list. The fence should be made of heavy wire (chicken wire) and be at least 18 inches tall and it must be buried at least 8 inches deep.

 

Rabbit repellents are available and are used with varied results. Continued applications, especially after irrigation or rain, must be made regularly. Follow all label instructions. Blood meal has been used also as a deterrent.

 

Dogs are an excellent rabbit deterrent but use caution - where rabbits are present, so too are coyotes!
