Thanks everyone, yes it's nature and you don't live in the country if you don't want to interact with the wildlife but it does spoil the excitement of planting or trying to grow anything. Yes our PBGV is a sweetie and a 'character' 1 1/2 years old but bosses our 10 year old Basset Fauve around terribly. When she caught the rabbit she would not give it up and stayed out in the garden, under a hedge until well after dark. As far as repellents goes, I wondered if that would be the case Dovefromabove, and presumably you would have to reapply after rain. It seems two ways to go, learn to live with it or get someone to net them, surrounded by plenty of helpful farmers so it might be an option, although I would have to go out while they do it. Yes I do have a foot in both camps - fluffy bunnies and gardening - I can't help it!
