RABBIT PROOF PLANTS

No plant is said to
be really rabbit proof. Young rabbits investigate by nibbling most
plants. They soon learn which plants are tasty and which ones to
leave alone.  


In general rabbits dislike very aromatic plants, plants that ooze
caustic milky sap, prickly plants, plants with spines, or plants
with tough leathery leaves.


Below is a list of plants which are considered rabbit
resistant.  These are only from A to E in the alphabet.

TIP

If you are looking for
plants to suit your personal garden and growing conditions
then I have found an invaluable
site.

This free
to use website has a
database of over 3,700
plants and over 10,500
photographs to help with plant
identification and it is growing
daily.

Each plant is
accompanied with images, full
plant description, Latin names
explained, planting and
illustrated pruning advice plus
superb photographs and information on
pests and diseases.

There is also
a very interesting ‘time lapse’
feature on some of the items
which shows how a plant grows
over several months.

The
illustrated pruning advice shows
you what to do with added
personal comments from the
authors to help with some
plants.
