Rabbit problems

And yes, I put their food in their hutch when I get up in the morning, then let them out before I go to work. So they aren't hungry when I let them out. Don't know whether it's just greed or what with them. They are fed top of the range dry rabbit food and also cabbage and occasionally sliced carrots. They eat more than I do! So they really have no reason to then eat my plants

Thank you for your comments. I have tried creating a run for them but apart from my lawn that they dug holes in I could only put it on my patio and I can't imagine that would be very pleasant for them. Although creating a run and putting mesh down on the grass is a good idea actually. I might have to try that in summer. In winter I don't really bother because all the plants die back and the shrubs lose their leaves but it's spring/summer when they become a problem when all my perennials are destroyed before they can even grow as they eat the new growth. I would feel bad having them in a run really as for the 6 and a half years I have had them, they have always had the run of the garden but think it's about time I put my foot down! After all it's my garden, not theirs! Cheers for the idea.

I really need to know some plants/shrubs that my rabbits will leave alone. I have two domestic rabbits that have the run of the garden and then go in their hutch at night. Ive had them for 6 years and over this time I have spent a countless amout of money replacing my plants that theyve killed. Please bare in mind they have had a go at pretty much everything apart from my rhododendrons which I dont like anyway but still. They have even killed two small gunnera I planted last year, two clematis and a honeysuckle. Ive tried fencing an area off for them to play but then they just dug holes in my lawn. Theyre like machines. And to top it off they chewed my foxgloves down, which are poisonous. Ive considered giving them away but I just cant bring myself to do it!

Please help!!
