Rabbit Repellent – How to Keep Rabbits out of the Garden

After applying used kitty litter, the tulips can bloom in peace.
Rabbits destroyed the foliage on these tulips before I applied the used kitty litter.

It’s a delight to see the first tulip bloom of the season.  Imagine my dismay when the following morning the tulip was snapped off and the bloom was completely gone!  Those pesky rabbits are so destructive – they can destroy a flower or vegetable garden in one day.

To prevent further damage, I cleaned out the cat box and saved the used litter, sprinkling it around the perimeter of the flower beds.  That was three weeks ago and I haven’t had any more damage.  I used this same rabbit repellent last year and it was very effective.  Unfortunately I didn’t learn about it until after the furry four-legged mowers had chewed all of the foliage off my hostas.

This year I’ll be liberally sprinkling the litter around the edges of the gardens on a regular basis.  Especially after heavy rainfall.    If it loses its effectiveness, I’ll give one of the commercially prepared solutions a try as I’ve heard that you should alternate between repellents periodically.

I’ll be sure to let you know what the outcome is.
