Assume all houseplants are likely toxic, so keep them out of reach of your bunny. However, many things you can grow in the garden are fine to share!Your rabbit should be eating a diet made up of at least 75% hay. Then the remaining 25% of the diet is split between veggies and small volumes of fruit and pellets. A rabbit should have access to about 1 cup of fresh greens per 2-2.5 pounds of body weight daily. Be sure to introduce these greens gradually and slowly increase the volume to allow their GI tract and get used to the new foods.Safe Plants to Share with Your Rabbit:Alfalfa sproutsArugulaAsparagusBasilBeet GreensBok ChoyBroccoli, leaves, and stemsBrussel sproutsChinese cabbageCarrots and carrot topsCeleryChard, SwissChicory GreensCoriander/CilantroCress, GardenDandelion GreensDill leavesEggplantEndiveFennel (leaves and base)Flowers - roses, pansies, hibiscus, nasturtiums, aster, carnation, geranium, marigolds, sunflowerGrass - must be grazed on while still growing; do NOT feed grass clippings to your rabbit!Hay - timothy, orchard, oat, brome, alfalfa (if young, growing, pregnant, or nursing)Jerusalem ArtichokeKaleKohlrabiLettuce - romaine (darker leafy green lettuce varieties are best)Lettuce - red or greenMintMustard GreensMustard SpinachOkraParsleyPeppers-Bell, any colorRadishes and leavesRaspberry leavesSpinachSummer SquashTurnips and greensZucchiniWatercressWheatgrassFruitsApple, cherries, peach, plum, mango, apricot, nectarines (no stems or seeds for these fruits as they are toxic in large volumes)PapayaKiwiPineappleMelonsBanana (no peel)Star fruitStrawberryRead more:Rabbit Nutrition: How to feed your pet rabbitDo Rabbits Make Good Pets?Rabbit Housing TipsNeed to speak with a veterinarian regarding your rabbit's diet or another condition?Click here to schedule a video consult to speak to one of our vets.
