Illustrated Guide to Edibles: Safe plants, fruit, berries, branches, vegetables and herbs

Important: Seperating different sorts or species from each other can be difficult. Hopefully these lists can help you out - check out the illustrated lists and click on the titles of plants you´re still uncertain of to study the additional - and often much larger - photos you´ll be directed to . If you are still not sure of what species you have picked/found, avoid giving it to your rabbit(s). You can´t trust rabbits to know what they can or cannot ingest without getting into trouble. Avoid plants that may have been exposed to chemicals or pollution from busy roads.

We also recommend that you take a closer look at Medirabbits feeding information/food list, and additionally their illustrated list of toxic plants.
