Keep Rabbits out of Garden Boxes

Post  Too Tall Tomatoes on 4/15/2012, 11:29 am

This occurred to me yesterday.....

My boxes are built on a slope. They're 12 inches high at the top end and 20 inches high at the low end. Do you think that it's tall enough to keep rabbits out, or should I maybe add a 6 inch tall fence around the edge of the box?

Better safe than sorry.

I don't see how it could hurt to add some extra protection....there might be some other critters besides rabbits that you might also want to keep out that it could protect you from.

Every once in a blue moon I see a groundhog across in my neighbor's back yard. Maybe I should build a fence. What a Face

" Wabbits can jump two feet off two feet doc " if they feel like it .

Our old English white spot was a sod for juming over his outdoor pen & going into the vegt patch after eating as many 12 inch tall sunflowers plants as he could find .( He was over 24 inches long )
