This sweet-looking bunny lives in the wooded swamp area right beside our house and is always on the front lawn. I never thought much of it and enjoyed the cute little animal nibbling on the grass until I noticed him getting closer and closer to the house.
I had planted the dianthus seedlings I grew indoors over winter in one of the front garden beds and noticed some buds were about to open, so a few days later I checked again to see if the flowers were open and saw this –
It seems as though this bunny likes snacking on my flowers.
And my strawberries.
I have had to chase him out of the garden several times this week, so I did some reading on different things to try and deter bunnies and other animals from the garden. Some of which seem so silly to me, like human hair and moth balls! No thanks.
I did try sprinkling garlic powder around the beds and thought it was working since he wasn’t coming near the garden, but I saw him in there early this morning. If anyone has any suggestions of a good organic rabbit or small critter repellent… suggest away. I need him to stay away.
