The hostas are beautiful...Any hints from the Horns for keeping the rabbits from eating the hostas and other newly planted beds?

I have had success spraying plants with Liquid Fence but you have to spray again after it rains. Some people recommend Plantskydd but I have not tried it. There is no need to reapply it after rain. Both are environmentally safe. I have also found that covering new sprouts and plants for awhile with chicken wire rings or wire baskets makes them unavailable and after awhile the rabbits don't care. PS: I don't think bunnies are cute anymore. Jane Horn

I agree, bunnies are not cute anymore. There is no fighting Mother Nature, it seems. The bunnies and gophers who started appearing in my yard a couple of years ago are winning the battles and, most likely, will win the war too. Liquid Fence is good but it's time consuming having to constantly apply and for some reason, the dog licks it all off if I don't stop him!
