How Do I Keep Rabbits From Eating Certain Plants With Natural Solution

Question From: MICHIGAN
Q: How do I keep rabbits from eating certain plants ?Do you know of a natural solution . Store bought is getting expensive.

A: Home made rabbit repellant. Instructions: To make this rabbit repellent, first fill a one gallon container, such as a milk jug, with water. Crush 5 garlic cloves and add them to the water. Add a teaspoon of crushed red peppers and 1 tablespoon of dish soap. Shake the container very well and then place it outdoors in the direct sun for two days. This is to allow the ingredients to permeate the water. To use, shake the container well and then pour or spray the solution on the plants you want to protect from rabbits. Note: To use in a sprayer you will need to strain the solution through a cloth to remove garlic and pepper pieces that can clog your sprayer tip. Respray once a week and after rainfall until the rabbits change their pattern and find other plants that they want to munch on. Hopefully weeds or other non-desirable plants! I found the above recipe on a Google search. I have read that Cayenne pepper and garlic powder works. But they wash off when it rains. And it doesn't last long. Best Nancy and Happy Yardening.
