Rabbits Eating Herbs
I would like to plant sweet basil but in the past rabbits have eaten other plants. Do they like basil, rosemary or oregano? I would imagine they would devour parsley. Thanks!

Hi,

Thanks for writing. Deer and rabbits often ignore strongly scented herbs such as basil, rosemary, and oregano. But like people, each rabbit has its own sense of taste.

If you want to grow these plants and you're very concerned for them, you might try growing them in tall pots (or pots up on something like a tabletop or a bench) so the rabbits can't get at them.
