How can I stop cats and squirrels digging up my plants?
I have tried commercial scent sprays and granuels that are supposed to put the animals off but they have not worked at all.
Try the method for moles on my hub: http://brittanytodd.hubpages.com/hub/Na … st-Control
Try burying kebab sticks pointing up. This won't hurt the animals but will make it unpleasant for them to be digging around.
Here are a few suggestions for existing plants . . . you can place chicken wire beneath the base of the plants just below the soil surface and replace the soil back to the base of the plants, re-covering the roots. You can place thorned rose branches around the base of the plants as a form of prickly mulch. Soak hot peppers in a gallon jug overnight, strain it and fill a spray bottle and mist the plant leaves above and below. Fence the area, or create a fence circling the individual plant. Place a plastic predator (like a snake, owl or cat) near the plants.
Hope these help!
