Hey Dale, thanks for joining...

To stop rabbits requires that you do one of three things...
  • exclusion IE: fence
  • treat with something they don't like
    I like an egg in a blender of water, or deer away... liquid fence... Was looking at a new product online last month... I'll post when I find... found it... Deer Fortress.... Don't know how good this is, but it sounds like da bomb!
  • plant stuff they won't eat
    See deer page...
Here's the fence I use to keep both deer & rabbits out...

If you want to protect your flowers you could try sprinkling them with something bad-tasting, like chilli powder. This will put any smart rabbit off eating them, but you'll have to reapply the substance after it rains.

Rabbits find the plants tasty so keeping them away from your flower beds you can put a fence having chicken wire inside. you can also sprinkle hair clippings around your flower bed as scent of human hairs will make the rabbits think that any human is around. If it does not work you can use liquid repellants which are easily available.
