Dock (Old leaves)

Rabbits find old dock (Rumex obtusifolius) leaves less palatable than the young ones. The older leaves tend to gain a red colour and usually have scars on them. They are not worth picking and it is unlikely the rabbits will eat them. Dock leaves contain oxalic acid which could be hazardous if consumed in larger quantities.
