Do you have rabbit problems, I had, I think I have managed to stop them coming in now?

Oh yes!! We have rabbit problems! A large part of the garden is fenced so that they can't get in there. This is in a rabbit superhighway * that links a field that has dozens feeding in it all day long with an area of gorse where there are lots of burrows. Another aspect of the rural life. My son wants an air rifle.....


I know you've seen this pic already Michaella, the rabbits live in the gorse which surrounds us. This is a fire break that we made to protect the house, should there be a fire.

I had exactly the same problems, I also have foxes and muntjacs, don't know which is worse, non can come in now though. I can still see them in the field, when I first moved here 7 yrs ago they were actually living under the shed and were breeding, every spring I would watch little bunnies coming out from under the shed, it was cute at first as the garden had no plants in it, I was not even aware they ate plants as I moved here from London, where one do not see these things, when I noticed all my young plants and tender shrubs being eaten, I had to stop them, I only won last year :))))

I shall take a look at the website now :)
