A rabbit has been munching on my tulips.
How do I know it was a rabbit? He left his calling card.
There's no denying who those pellets belong to. This really ticks me off, because I bought these tulip bulbs for their unique foliage. See that super awesome white line running up the side of the leaves? Pretty cool, eh? Well, it would be cool if a rabbit hadn't gnawed the leaf half off. I hate rabbits. If they get near my veg, I will get a shotgun.
So now I'm looking for rabbit deterrents that do not involve ammunition, because Ian says I am not allowed to buy a gun. What a buzz kill. I have found the following recommended solutions:
- plant green onions among the plants
- place a fake hawk or owl around the yard
- sprinkle red pepper spray on the ground (how do you sprinkle a spray?)
