    It may be a lot of work for you but the only way to deter them is to put down garlic or hot pepper flakes. rabbits do not like the smell.

    I don't have many rabbits, but the deer in my neighborhood destroy my Hostas. I spray with Liquid Fence Deer & Rabbit Repellent. It's pricey and smells absolutely disgusting, but only for a short while...until it dries. It's tedious. I have to spray every week. And if I'm only a day or two late, the deer are back! But it does work very well when I maintain that schedule.

    My grandfather always planted marigolds around his garden to keep out rabbits.

    There is a product called "Repels All" that you can find at many nurserys. It sticks but it works

    I've learned from a farmer back east that human hair clippings sprinkled about in the flower beds seems to work very well for him. The animal smells the hair and runs away, thinking that the predator Is close by. You can go to your local hair salon and ask them to reserve a small bag of hair for you. Generously sprinkle it in the area. Hope tis helps!

    I've used the rabbit repellent spray, and it worked fairly well. The best solution was a new neighborhood cat. They were gone in one year. I don't condone killing animals but this kitty did the trick. No I didn't hire her, she was just roaming the neighborhood.
