Help! I keep planting shrubs in my garden but rabbits keep eating everything. Is there something that I can plant that these pests will leave well alone? Thanks N.A. Carn.
It often seems that rabbits can eat anything that they like. There are some shrubs that they tend to steer clear of because of factors such as thorns, spines, prickles or unappetising smells of tastes. There is no guarantee that they will leave these plants alone but they do show a degree of resistance.
Shrubs that rabbits won’t eat (hopefully)
Ornamental and edible currants
Viburnum opulus and V. tinus
