01 – Why gardening?

Rabbits as herbivores like to eat all kinds of plants and herbs. A good way to provide them with organic, high-quality and inexpensive food is to plant these plants yourself. You can buy seeds and seed mixes for this purpose or you can buy plants directly from any garden centre near you. Your choice between seeds and plants will of course depend on how much time you want to spend growing and your ‘level’ in the garden centre.

At home, don’t hesitate to create a small vegetable garden in your garden. Rabbits will be happy to come and frolic in it from time to time to enjoy themselves. In a flat, it is also possible to make a few shoots on a balcony, terrace or even a window sill. For those who prefer to garden indoors, there are now a number of products available to ensure rapid growth indoors, such as the Lilo vegetable garden designed by a French start-up company.

03 – Some precautions

As you know rabbits are big eaters…if you don’t want to see your crop disappear in less time than it takes, I advise you to protect the access to your vegetable garden. I also advise you to avoid any use of chemical or other fertilizers that could have serious consequences for your rabbits.
