'Unry Wabbits

Any practical tips for discouraging the rabbits from enjoying the courgette and butternut plants, other than fencing of course :slightly_smiling_face:

We had a deterrent in UK… electrical device set to the “rabbit” tone of whatever it did… worked a treat…but we needed several… it depends how big the area is … :relaxed:

For some reason I am imagining you with a bushy red moustache… Bill… :wink::relaxed::thinking: hope the rabbits don’t drive you too mad… :sweat_smile:

:rofl: No don’t do 'Hirsute/ Scratchy/Itchy Stella.
Though, one rabbit repellant that has been suggested is human hair!
I haven’t enough to spare, but the lady who suggested it is going to get some from a hairdresser friend, pity dog hair’s no good, we have heaps of that available :slightly_smiling_face:

never heard of that one… did you enjoy the cartoon ??

Very good Stella, not seen that one :+1:

Get a terrier. Thet are pretty good at keeping rabbits out.

During aperos with French and Belgium friends Sunday the subject of rabbits came up. They have really declined here (rabbits not friends) and we now see them rarely.
Having said that one hopped across the road in front of my car this morning and I nearly drove into the ditch in my excitement ! :rabbit::rabbit2:

We don’t see them much, but the ‘signs’ are on the grass in the garden, and the tops of the beans have disappeared several times.
We have one dog Jo’ 's’nuff, had Jacks and a Podengo, so I know how efficient terriers are. :slightly_smiling_face:

'Ere 'e is, tonight, ‘Little Treasure’, ‘thinking about ‘avin’ a go at the tattie tops, would fit beautifully into a frying pan with the tatties an’ beans I’m trying to grow :slightly_smiling_face:

Some of us throw a little grain/seed out for the birds… you take things one step further Bill… you grow veg especially so that the local rabbits will not starve.

Well done Bill ! :hugs:
