Rabbit Resistant

Rabbits may be cute but can be detrimental on gardens.  Nothing is more frustrating than seeing a garden after a rabbit has been through sampling your plants!  There are different repellents available that can be used as deterrents.  Another option is to plant trees and shrubs that rabbits don’t find appealing to graze on.  Always keep in mind that if rabbits are hungry enough they will eat anything!
