I have collards that are finding it difficult to grow because they are being eaten. I am pretty sure rabbits are the culprit. I read (I believe here) to put dog hair around the plants, but that has not been working. Suggestions are greatly appreciated.

Yup, it's a battle! Perhaps netting or chicken wire would work, or if you have a hunting/fishing type outdoor store, get bottled fox scent to sprinkle around.

They will get used to scents and repellents if the actual animal (fox) never shows up, so switching around is needed.

Good luck! Love collards myself.
