    Ground cover roses such as Flower Carpet Roses create a thorny barrier that discourages rabbits.

    Get a bottle of coyotee urine. No pun intended. Most garden centers can get it for you. Just spray it on with a hose end sprayer every 2-3 weeks.

    I've also heard of the coyotee urine solution although I always had a question..

    Who goes around bottling up coyote urine for re-sale??

    Is it chemically made in a factory? Do they capture it at a ZOO?? <G>
