Battling the rabbits

Wiltshire, United Kingdom Gb

I have a rabbit which keeps getting into my veg plot at the bottom of my garden and it's eating it's way through virtually everything! Does anyone have any ideas on how to deter/catch etc this damn bunny. Any suggestions GREATLY appreciated!!!



Hang up some garlic cloves where the beast is coming in.....honest this really works rabbits hate the aromatic smell of will find that this bunny soon gets the message and will leave your vegetable garden well alone....Best Wishes.

Apparently moth balls will deter them! Seriously!

Get a friend with a small gun to shoot it.

From my experience a few years ago with an escaped pet rabbit, neither the RSPCA or police wanted to know. I finally persuaded a local Animal Rescue Centre to come and collect it

I feed my wild rabbits... they come first to the basket and eat what they please...they haven't touched my crabapple this year nor have they bothered my tulips...seems they prefer carrots, potato peelings, lettuces and parsley. I plant extra of everything usually...lettuce and parsley make lovely edging plants and the rabbits can have all they want!
