Having treated the long-eared visitors to her garden with a feast of surprise menus, Janet noticed which plants survived and which perished.

The results of her experiments are combined with advice from experts to give a list of 81 plants each given a 'rabbit-proof' star rating.

Beginning with a history of the rabbit, Gardening with the Enemy shows how to plan a garden which rabbits can wander through leaving your precious plants undamaged.
81 'rabbit-proof' plants are described in detail and plants which rabbits love are also listed. Illustrated with amusing cartoons and literary extracts, the book also looks at a dozen further options for protecting plants. The pros and cons of age-old solutions such as fences and creosote-soaked string as well as modern options such as ultrasound are discussed.

New fifth edition includes supplementary list of a further 51 rabbit-proof plants suggested by readers of Gardening with the Enemy.

While folk-lore would have us believe rabbits eat anything green, anyone who has seen a beautiful country garden suspects there must be a way to outwit the rabbit. The answer appears to lie in the non-combative approach. The rabbit is here to stay so our job is simple: enjoy the garden; enjoy the rabbit.
