Rabbits Eating Herbs

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

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 a tabletop or a bench -- so the rabbits can't get at them.
