    Do you mean Buddleia or Herb Robert?

    They eat every scrap of Herb Robert. I don't feed Buddleia flowers, but just the leaves and stems

    We have a couple of Hop plants that are scrambling up different sides of the house. Well this year they've gone bonkers and there are baby Hop plants growing everywhere up through shrubs. Don't quite know why. Perhaps we didn't tidy them up quite as much last year or the year before and they have self-seeded. Anyway, the rabbits are delighted They're going mad for them. I've also noticed lots of wild ones growing up through the hedges along the road, so perhaps it's just a very good year for Hops

    Hops .. I remember last year when I visited Twigs for her Foraging Day, we gathered in hops. I've seen none down here, but I picked a lot whilst with Twigs and hung them up to dry. The buns loved them! You have lucky buns

    The Buddleia has been well recieved - I obviously have very non fussy rabbits!

    I train mine to be non-fussy. 'Eat this, or starve' is what I tell them

    We leave it for 24hrs, by which time they'll have finished everything that isn't hay or isn't liked! Buddleia falls into the 'worse than hay' category. But any fresh green stuff is acceptable when it's 'bramble or hay' (i.e. winter)
    The geeky one...
