Rabbits

Some of us are experiencing problems with rabbits eating our prize plants. It isn’t always possible to rabbit proof our entire gardens, so here are some plants that they don’t usually eat.

  • Euphorbia
  • Acanthus
  • Penstemen
  • Bush fuchsias
  • Alliums
  • Some grasses – but not all!
  • Kniphophia
  • Roses once established – they may nibble new shootsl
  • Hardy geraniums

Rabbits really love clover, so keep some in your lawn and they might leave the other plants alone.

Hosta – slug control

If you grow Hostas in pots, it’s time for slug control. To keep them from climbing into the pots, either rub vaseline round the brim of the pot or spray round the pot with WD40. It works!
