Bunnies, the bane of gardeners everywhere!
They have a voracious appetite for fresh vegetation which they cut clean off. They’re also voracious at something else which makes them capable of producing up to 18 baby bunnies a year! The best defense is not giving them a homestead! I had a family of bunnies living under my raised porch… I put some hardwire cloth where I could and then used my barberry and rose branches to deter them. So far, it’s helped!
Liquid Fence and Plant Skydd are 2 of the best repellents for rabbits. I personally like Plant Skydd in the granular form, it lasts up to 3 months and is completely safe for kids and pets. I have not found Plant Skydd in many stores, I had to order it online.
One good thing about Rabbits – their poop is great for your garden!
The bunnies haven’t touched the front garden! A dose of Plantskydd helped!
