    Can anyone recommend ferns that are rabbit resistant?

    That’s a tough one. I don’t have any experience of rabbits in my garden. Sorry, I’m afraid I can’t help.

    I grow ferns on an allotment and last summer I had a rabbit come and take residence in my shade tunnel. The only fern that I think it ate was Cyathea dreggei, a tree fern sporeling from South Africa
    I think the rabbit was a domestic pet that either escaped or was let loose. It did not survive for long
    My guess is that rabbits do not like ferns very much and will find other things to eat, particularly on an allotment
    However, you might like to tell me if your experience is contrary to mine
