Problem with rabbits

Hi, Anybody know how to keep the rabbits away from the flowers? They keep eating them off. Especially the Pansies..

Hi- This might sound strange but take your family hair brushes out to the garden and empty the hair into the garden around the edges it keeps the bunnies out!

Hi Kimmerlyam,
We put up a small wide chicken wire fence and then planted onions all around. That did it! They do not come in. YHou can also plant marigold around too. Read this in a Companion book.
Have a great Day!

According to Jerry Baker's book... sift wood ashes on to the plants in the garden. Also chicken wire around them or a picket fence....

I've been told that black pepper makes them sneeze. We had pansies growing just outside of our front door. Early one morning, I went to let the dog out for a pee. Just as I was about to open the door a skunk was chewing on my pansies. I closed the door quickly and watched this skunk look up at me as if to say that he would leave as soon as he was done his dinner. I told this story to our vet and he told me that he had a client open his door for his dog and the dog grabbed the skunk by the neck and brought it back in & shaking it back and forth like a rag doll. He bought the Skunk Be Gone stuff by the gallon. The vet said he could take a good vacation on what he made from that visit.

Try dried blood. This sound gross but it works, you can get it at farm supply stores. It used to be available at local garden stores but they stopped carrying it. This also works for squirrels and is a great fertilizer.

Problem with rabbits

We use blood meal. It works great. The rabbits just love our tomatos. So we sprinkle blood meal around and have no more problems. The hair and the moth balls work also. You can use this for all of your plants. They also liked getting into my herbs.
Happy Gardening,
