Burning Bush and Bunny Rabbits (Euonymus Alatus)
I love burning bush, but the two I bought, were eaten by rabbits. I was unaware.
Now, I'd like to try again...I know, I know...why?
We did have one when we moved here which was well protected by yews and the rabbits didn't kill it, but I did...by girdling it with rope for too long when we re-sided our home.
If I were to purchase some bushes for foundation planting, is there anything that I could do through the seasons besides fencing to keep the rabbits off them?
I can't fence them, and I can't shoot them.
I read somewhere about capsicum oil, and I know about Fence-Off. Do they work? And do they work on the bark itself, or just the foliage?
Some one also said something somewhere about using black plastic netting, the kind one uses for keeping birds from berries, I assume. .that seems like a good choice...easy and probably not visible from the road. Does that work?
