Q.Blood meal

Zone Nebraska | Dllcross added on July 27, 2015 | Answered

With a new batch of hostas just planted, I had a neighbor tell me “if I put blood meal on the flowerbed it would keep the rabbits away.” After I read your info, it didn’t state rabbits. How often and when/where is the best way to apply the blood meal? How long does it last and is it still effective after it rains?

The rabbits did not just devour my garden after the new growth was looking great, they enjoyed the feast of roses and any new bud, lilies and their new buds, hosta leaves, marigolds, tulips and their leaves, and any new young flowering or green plant I’ve tried to plant this year. I did get the container of urine from menards this spring which worked great and I didn’t see rabbits for about 5 days but I finished that after I planted the hostas last week. But what else can I do?
