    Has anyone used rabbit manure in gardening?

    Friday, June 10th, 2011

    I have four indoor rabbits that produce lots of poop. Has anyone used rabbit manure before in gardening? They use a litter box full of wood stove pellets. Does that make any difference to plants?
    Anyone interested in buying some?

      How can I start a vegetable/ herb garden in spite of rabbits and mice?

      Wednesday, May 18th, 2011

      We recently moved into our first home (lived in apartments before). I have always been sort of a frustrated gardener- I’ve had lots of container plants. Now that I have a HUGE yard, I want to start a vegetable and herb garden. The problem is, we have lots of rabbits that visit our yard every day, and there are mice in the field behind us (they come into our yard sometimes). I am an animal lover and do not want to poison, trap, or otherwise "get rid of" these animals, but I don’t want them to eat all my veggies (or make the mouse problem worse). Is there anything I can do to protect my garden or discourage these animals from coming in my yard (I have a dog and a cat, but they still come in).

      Any serious ideas would be appreciated.

          How do i get a rabbit?

          Wednesday, February 2nd, 2011

          Well.. I have already had one rabbit a few years ago but that died when he was 7 years old… Im now 13 and would like another rabbit, I live in lancaster and i have seen an adoption center just out side lancaster but im unsure about it because they have to check your house and my garden isn’t very big, Also i would like a baby rabbit but i have no idea where to buy them from…. I am using the money i got for christmas!

          There’s a hutch at Pets At Home for £55 and it comes with food and accessories like hay and Other things like that but i would like some advice on if it is worth it as just for a single hut its about £80 and i only have around £130 :S I will also want a run which is wort £22 from Pets At Home but is it better to get a cheaper one off somewhere like Ebay?

          I need to persuade my mum about it as well she loved my old rabbit Tilly but this time she isn’t sure my dad is fine with it but how can i get my mum to help, I mean i know they need attention and i managed that with tilly and he was fine and i am postive i can do it and also its not her money shes spending its mine and i would just like a new animal, I have a cat who gets on with rabbits very well as when my cousin brought her rabbit round to play with tilly Henry, My cat, Loved the rabbits and was very protective over both of them and now my cat is 16 and is old and not very well and i want a new animal before he goes :/

          I am not bothered to much on the breed as long as it doesnt look like tilly i am fine, As i dont want to feel like i have got a second him and find my new rabbit better. Tilly was a lop bunny and they are adorable i would love another one of them in brown or maybe a Dutch Rabbit!

          Please can you answer my questions on persuading my mum to get me a rabbit and my cage and where a good place to get them is!
          😀 Thank You x

            Could someone give me some tips on vegetable gardening in Florida climate?

            Thursday, January 6th, 2011

            With the rising costs of gas pushing up food prices, I would like to plant a vegetable garden. What are some vegetables that can be planted in late spring? As I stated, I live in Central Florida where there is plenty of sunshine, but summers are very hot. It is already in the mid 80’s in April. Also, the soil here is rather sandy so I would have to fortify it with something before planting.
            I would definitely like to plant tomatoes, okra, squash, onions and cucumbers. Would these make it in the Florida climate? It is also very humid here.
            Finally, what is the best type of fence to keep out rabbits and raccoons? Forgive me for sounding clueless, but I am new at this. I would like to make this a fun and educational experience for myself and my children. It would also take some financial strain off of us in the long run. Thanks!

            How do I start a vegetable garden in Indianapolis, IN?

            Monday, September 6th, 2010

            I live in a suburb of Indianapolis, IN and have never had a vegetable garden. I would like to start out small to see how it will go. There are a lot of squirrels and rabbits in our neighborhood to, so I need to know if I need a fence or any other way to deter them.
