I'm looking for ideas (home remedies) on what to spray on flowers to keep rabbits from eating my newly planted summer flowers.

    Buy "Moth Balls" or "Moth Flakes" and sprinkle them inside and around your plants. Rabbits used to eat all my plants and decorative grasses till a friend told me about this. Now, it's not a problem anymore.

    Just get a cat or two. We've never had a problem with rabbits!

    Go to the local beauty shop and get a small bag of human hair clippings. If you will sprinkle them around your flower bed that should do the trick.

    Mint should do the trick. But remember mint plants are invasive, so plant them in a planter or they will be everywhere :) They also work for mice.

    I like to sprinkle red pepper on and around the plants.

    I use an animal repellent in my vegetable garden called REPEL ALL by Bonide. We purchased it at Lowe's. It is available at Home Depot and at Farm & Feed stores. I found it at Walmart garden center one time but the store now has other brands of animal repellent products. It stinks at first, but will soon disappear leaving only a scent that animals can detect. I have used it for 5 years and I never have animal come into the garden since then. We live in the country on a lake where many wild animals have access to our yard.

    Put one of those plastic owls on a stick & put in garden! It will not only move in the wind, but will keep out pesky animals & birds!
