Anti - Rabbit Plants and shrubs

A friend is having all sorts of problems with rabbits eating her freshly planted shrubs and plants.

Does anyone have a list of those plants that Rabbits don't like.

Their garden is surrounded by woods and in a dip....quite magical really like a Sylvian Glade and gets sun all day long.
Any help would be appreciated....but please don't mention guns !!!!! I know it would solve the problem but they won't hear of it.

Thanks

Hope this link helps Yummy but as the site says during a famine rabbits will eat almost anything. Catmint is a good thing to grow, cats love it and rabbits don't like it :0)

We are fortunate here as there is the occasional hare spotted but the bunny wunnies are thriving in the town (small town loads of large gardens and breeding areas). Friends of ours have a 2 acre field where the rabbits have their home. The potager is now surrounded by wire fencing buried a foot deep under the soil but the bunnies no longer get his crops :0)

Thanks Biggs

Have passed on the website to my friends.......I had given them a good clump of the catmint (although I didn't know at the time) just because they have such an area to plant out and the catmint covers really well and comes up each year.

ps hope you haven't been caught out by the floods down there, we have had really strong winds here since monday, but thankfully things have calmed down today, hope it continues as the temps are going up....summer may be just round the corner :0))

Anti Rabbit plants....

Tee hee, rumours are that summer is a comming.. Our tatties have learnt to swim!!!

No, thankfully we have not been too badly affected here just grey skies and an incredible amount of mizzle interspersed with heavy rain. The poor chooks are looking like drowned rats and decline to move to the dry areas. They are still laying which is great :0)

Thierry is making loads of ice cream trying to keep up with the egg production.

I do hope the plant list will be helpful; it is devastating when you look out in the morning and find the garden totalled! I had a pedicure this afternoon and was told a very sorry tale of 65 sheep breaking through a fence and they proceeded to demolish the garden they had ambled thorugh to. They had eaten roses and everything with the exception of the rosemary.

Hope all well up there in Brittany. Strange weather for us all at the moment......

Hi Biggles,
I was interested in that link too. Rabbits are a MAJOR pest over here and were really bad last summer. They eat newly planted trees and ring-bark some larger ones on our holiday house property. We've put out poison - but not guns. They breed so fast it's impossible to keep up!!

When we move there and plant a garden that plant list will be useful.
Glad you haven't been washed away!
