Rabbit Problema with Blue Fescue ('Elijah Blue') Plants
This spring I planted 9 clumps of Elijah Blue grass in the front of my small townhouse garden. To say the least, I was not happy that the local rabbits immediately "trimmed" them. Over the summer, I have repeatedly sprayed the plants with Liquid Fence and Shot Gun repellents and then bought garlic spikes which I inserted in the middle of each clump. This seemed to work for awhile and grasses recovered and started to have nice spikey clumps again. But now the rabbits are back again and are ruining the clumps. I had no idea that rabbits would bother ornamental grasses or I would have never planted Elijah Blue plants. I also have quite a number of rose bushes in my garden that I have to protect with chicken wire. But I don't want to put wire around these grases that are at the front of the garden. Any suggestions on how to keep the rabbits away from these grasses. Otherwise, I will have to replace with something that rabbits don't eat...
Any suggestions will be appreciated. Thanks.
