cage to protect this shrub from rabbits

Before winter after fall, that one week before it really gets cold is the week to protect your new or in danger shrubs from them cute rabbits. I use 3′ tall chicken fencing. Burlap can also be used.


When protecting shrubs from rabbits, I find it important to use stakes or old utility flags bent in half to hold the chicken fencing in place, these are stuck into the ground.

All small shrubs/new trees should be protected if you have had any rabbit issues in the past.

Some shrubs should always be protected this was during the winter…
-viburnum carlessi
-hydrangea paniculata
-hydrangea quercifolia
-amelanchier (service berry)
-euonymus alatus (burning bush)
