this happens on the patch where my mum and dad live in Cyprus. she has to plant into pots as the cats use the ground as their toilet (she has tried all sorts to stop this and now all the ground is covered in big stone) but her loveliest pots are swiped in the night. this really annoys her as the plants are not cheap over there. I too get upset if my plants get damaged by stray balls, dogs etc. I had a fella come and chop the hedge for me and whilst there I asked him to cut a few plants back. He obviously didnt know what he was doing as he chopped my wisteria to a foot in height. I had it planted in a metal bin so I could take it with me when I moved....needless to say, it stayed at the old house.
