No you should not!  But here’s a site to get some Rabbit Scram to stop them from eating up your roses.  And even though this is a deer scram site, the information given works very well with roses.  http://www.deerscram.com/  -Birdy

Wait until fall.....you can use died blood meal.....just a little....it really stinks..use a mask & gloves....and make a little skirt of chicken wire around the plant and make it look like a holiday skirt...................use big long wire staples from a lawn & garden store to secure them.  rabbits are cute but they eat everything.
