    I grow herbs, and there’s a lot of plantain and dandelions in the grass too, they love them. I’ll move this to diet and digestion for you

    All my rabbits have always adored celery I've never thought of growing it on like this though, but will give it a try.

    Mint plants are 50p in asda, I potted a load of these as my seeds didn't do well this year.

    Mint does well, and I think sprouting broccoli is alright too (I don't think you feed them much, but you can eat what's left). Strawberry, blackberry and raspberry leaves are always popular (as well as the fruit), and a little apple tree might go down well, if you have space...

    I grow Common Vetch too It's certainly very popular here. If you leave a few plants to go to seed, you can also use those seeds to grow some more. They poduce tiny pea-like pods filled with small, round, black seeds. Wait until the pod dries and goes brown.

    My late Nethie Charlie didn't really eat much except grass and the odd dandelion if he felt like it Probably why he lived so long XD

    Vetch is great but spreads very rapidly. Violets are awesome ground cover and very tasty. Fruit bushes are awesome. Mine love Jerusalem Artichoke leaves. Strawberries are always a hit (only the leaves, they're not so fussed about the fruits!), and Lopsy LOVES blackcurrants and leaves, although they're less fussed about redcurrant leaves and flowering currant leaves. Mallow, bush and plant, and roses are big with ours too.

    They also like the weird hebe-like plant we've got and box (I hate box!) but we don't feed those, they just prune them!
    The geeky one...

    Great idea, she really goes crazy when she sees it!

    Great ideas, thanks everyone!

    I’ve got kale seeds sprouting now, and dug the plot for my herb bed the other day.

    I inherited lots of cress seeds (polycress), but wasn’t sure if these were good for buns?
