Don't let their furry adorableness fool you. These little evil fluffballs will decimate a flower garden before you even get them planted. They have already eaten my verbena, rose moss, wand flower, and even the lilly blooms. I didn't have this problem in the country. Why? Because there are dogs that are allowed to chase out there. Dogs here have to be on leashes. They don't get to do what they do naturally. And the damn rabbits KNOW it.
Since I can't just let the dogs out, I have to resort to other methods. Chicken wire is most preferable - but again - I'm in the burbs. Chicken wire would not cut it with the neighbors. What else? I'm going to try a couple inexpensive ideas from the Farmer's Almanac: Irish Spring shavings and mint. Wish me luck!
