Lilies destroyed by Rabbits - AARGH!
This past fall I had plantd quite a few lilies (Tiger and Orientals) in my front yard. Unfortunately, Rabbits (I HATE RABBITS!) ate almost all of them.
I was waylaid in a hospital and then a rehab center for three months (crushed ankle, broken ribs, etc. from a car accident in April) and though I'm home now (still on disability)...I can't walk, bend down on my knees or really do much gardening.
Is there any chance these lilies will make it through the winter? This fall when I can move around I intend to 'fence' them up and also employ a couple of havaheart traps and 'relocate' as many of the vermin (i.e. 'rabbits') as possible.
It's been so frustrating (I LIVE for my garden-and the few short months of summer here in Minnesota in which I can garden) that my garden has gone completely to ruin this year and there is little I can do about it-I'm just hoping some of the lilies will be 'salvageable'.
Any thoughts or experiences?
