Rabbit friendly plants?

It is a tree, be very careful where you plant it. There are many different varieties, not many suitable for small gardens.

I think we do need a photo to ID these. Try making your photo smaller, this site doesn't seem to accept high resolution pics.

Rabbit friendly plants?

My garden's got lots of plants from that list but the (wild) rabbits seem to thrive! I think it's a bit on the "playing-it-safe" side, I guess rabbits avoid many poisonous plants. They never touch Aquilegia, for example.

You're right, that does look like a bluebell.

a good turn needs to be considered......

I've got a theory that it's that first sting of the season that's the worst - I wonder if it acclimatises you to further stings? Kind of immunisation?

The white ones in the top picture are Sweet Violet, Viola odorata. You can tell by the shape of the sepals, which are blunt. The other picture shows longer pointed sepals, so are more likely to be dog violets

Can you tell us a little about how you look after your plants? Do you have a problem with slugs, snails or rabbits?

I don't think the plant with grassy leaves is Spanish bluebell, Nut - the leaves look too narrow. But time will tell!

That's a drumstick primula, Primula denticulata.

bad day

Really scary day with the wind here as well. Things flying around all over the place - even my wheelbarrow went for a walk by itself! One of my bird tables has smashed on to the ground as well. I haven't wanted to be outside at all, and that's not like me!
