We have a load of rabbits in our neighborhood that love our backyard and our plants. I realize they need to eat too but they’ve been eating on our plants and pooping all over our backyard. Will our bushes they’ve been eating on come back from their feasting?

If the bark has been stripped off all the way around the stem or trunk, the plants should come back.  The rabbits and deer do like to eat the nutritious flowerbuds so you may not get as many (or any) flowers on early flowering shrubs like rhododendron or lilacs.  This damage will continue as long as it is cold so you may want to get a tanks sprayer and start applying repellent…here’s a link to more on that.
