Wild plants and trees

Free rabbit food is available in many  places in towpath, bridlepaths, river banks, public footpaths, waster ground, gardens and woddland. Knowing which wild plants to pick poses a problem for many people. Below is a collection of images of wild plants that are aimed at helping people decide whether to pick a plant or not. Please keep to the foraging rules. 


  • Do not deliberately uproot plants.  All wild plants are protected by the Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981 and it is illegal to uproot any plant without permission from the landowner or occupier. 
  • Only pick plants that you recognise and know your rabbit will eat.
  • Pick plants from areas where there are large patches of the plant.
  • Always pick in moderation so that plenty is left for others to enjoy.
  • Be careful not to damage other vegetation when collecting forage.
  • Picking wild plants to sell or for any other commercial purpose is considered to be theft.
