Chop 4 large onions, 4 hot chillies and 2 garlic cloves. Cover the lot with warm soapy water, and leave to steep for 24 hours. Strain off the liquid and add 5 Litres of water to the concentrate. Stores well for up to three weeks in a screw top jar in a cool dark place.
Spray your plants with this, and it's bye bye bunnies, it's also great against aphids.
I hasten to add, that l personally, have never tried this recipe, although my friend swore by it, l admit l erected a fence, which has worked, and l am now bunnyless!
Sometimes I ask for trouble, though, as I forget about the rabbits and do something rash like bring some plants back from the garden centre and leave them on the patio for a few minutes whilst I rummage in the potting shed, only to come back out and find there's no plants left! I lost lots of fuchsias that way last year. They do love their fuchsias - and bulbs, especially crocus, although they're not too keen on daffodils.
I know it's our fault for letting them have their freedom in the first place, but we didn't want to keep them caged and they really are VERY happy, running around and playing (and nibbling my plants!). It helps that they are incredibly cute as well, especially when they sit up and wash their ears which makes them just look like Thumper from Bambi. I love my garden as well, though, so I'm going to have to have a re-think. I don't think the answer is rabbit stew though!
