How do I protect flowers from Rabbits?

artisticcheese(7)July 27, 2013

Hello,

Rabbits chew on hibiscuss before it can reach height where it can not be touched by them. How do I prevent rabbits at least temporarily killing off my plants while they are being established. I can not really put fence in front flower bed. I also tried Repel-Al from Lowes but it did not do anything.

Thanks,
G

Find the way to collect your urine and apply it around the plants for several days. It worked for me when trying to get rid of voles out of my yard. My wife thinks it is disgusting and I think the voles agreed with her. I found it kinda fun, mischievous and effective.

I frequently pee outside and I know it will kill grass after multiple applications, I'm afraid this method will ruin plants

I know urine works as a deer deterrant. Prey animals read it as a preditor on the prowl. A little sprinkled on the ground will not harm plants. It's diluted when you water making very good fertilizer. It might be worth a try.

Here is a link that might be useful: Scientific American article on urine as fertilizer ...
