think i've finally found out what is growing in abundance in my garden - lace cap hydrangeas. i can't seem to find them on any bunny safe or toxic lists.
any ideas?

Big leaf hydranceas are toxic: http://www.medirabbit.com/EN/GI_diseases/Food/Toxic_plants_en.pdf (page 3) :wave:

thanks:)
some of the info is soooo confusing - for instance, one website quoted this:

Herbs usually not eaten by rabbits
Basil Ocimum basilicum
Mint Mentha species
Oregano Origanum vulgare
Parsley Petroselinum crispum
Savory Satureia hortensis
Tarragon Artemisia dracunculus
:shock::lol:

I think they are toxic.

I assume everything is toxic unless I have checked at least 3/4 alternative lists to ensure its simply not been missed off one.

i do the same but i can't find much about hydrangeas so i'll be blocking them off just in case.
