That Wascaly Wabbit Ate My Garden

One mother of two adorable children, desperately seeking advice on preventing the rabbits from eating her newly planted flowers. They thoroughly enjoyed eating all my verbena. Snipped clean and not a flower to be seen, except for a few plants closest to my lilies. We are talking something like 36 flowers.

If you have humane advice, please comment below!!!

After years of the Wascaly Wabbits eating my plants I found a product called BLOOD MEAL and it smells as bad as it sounds. Put around plants and resprinkle after it rains until plants are established.
They only like new plants. HOME DEPOT is where I fine It. GOOD LUCK
Your Mom

Oh no! Sorry to hear about the verbena loving rabbits, but I have heard that growing garlic or lavender among the flower beds will deter those little rascals. We have never had the problem, so I can't say for sure that they work but they will not harm you and you might enjoy using both in the future!

I never commented on this because sadly, I have no suggestions. I'm still on my first real garden and we don't get a lot of rabbits around here. ;) But I wanted to check in with you - how goes the gardening? Did you try the blood meal? I've used that in my flower beds before, but not for rabbits. Good luck!!! :)
