Hydrangea Rabbit Damage - Already!
So the grass is still green out here and in my area I have limited rabbit population.
I typically see rabbit damage in Feb and March.
After taking a walk through the yard I noticed a few stems eaten to the ground on a couple roses and my Macrophylla "Twist and Shout".
My question, I know I'll lose any flowers for old wood, but is there any concern with the rabbits pruning this particular variety at this time Or is it nothing to worry about...just like the weigela and spireas?
I don't want to go out there and cage them if I don't have to. Its already looking goofy out there with cages around my Fothergillas, Witchhazels and Viburnums.
