Glendoick Advice Sheets 1. Rabbits and Deer

Plants rabbits dislike

This list is compiled from reports from gardeners all over Scotland, but it cannot be totally relied upon - rabbits don't read lists, and plants some people find rabbit-proof are eaten with relish in other areas. Plants may be particularly vulnerable to damage when they are newly planted or with young growth emerging (novelty value?), or when the rabbits have little alternative choice of food. (if ground is snow-covered or frozen) If protected for this critical period, they will be less likely to be attacked once the protection is removed. Rabbits prefer leaves and soft stems rather than flowers and woody stems. They seem to prefer feeding in exposed/open positions and often nibble plants at the edge of borders.

 Deer Resitant Plants

Scotland has far too many deer (one estimate places the numbers around 750,000) and for some gardeners they are a constant menace. To keep roe deer out required an expensive deer fence not less than 1.5m and up to 2m high. Deer tend to cause most damage in cold winters with snow on the ground. Antler rubbing can also cause problems. The list below is far from infallible and hungry deer will eat almost anything.
