Bunnies in your garden

Who doesn’t love bunnies. I mean they are so cute!

I once had a bunny that lived with us for a couple of years. My son named him Boots because his feet were grey and the rest of his body was white. He really looked as if he wore boots.

Boots loved carrot peels and perked his ears when I listened to classical music.

But as adorable as they are, bunnies are a nuisance if you are trying to grow a garden.

These little guys sneak in and munch, munch, munch, crunch, crunch, crunch.

So how do you keep them away from your plants without harming them?

One sure way is to surround your garden with blood meal.

Blood meal is a dry, inert powder that is actually made from blood.

Sounds yucky but really, you don’t see the blood or smell it and it doesn’t attract vampires, not even around Halloween. Blood meal is a wonderful fertilizer  with lots of protein and nitrogen.

You can buy it online or in your local nursery.

So next time bugs bunny bugs you, let him smell your blood meal and hop, hop, hop, far away.

Any gardening tips? Plant them in my garden.

Have a wonderful green weekend,
