Foxes

Posted: 27/07/2014 at 11:28

Having just planted our front garden three weeks ago, we woke one morning to find scratch marks round the plants, thinking it may have been cats scratching the new top soil, I put cat powder round the plants, this smelt like garlic.  Three days later we woke to find two of the plants broken and half the garden raked onto the pavement.  Do you think this could be foxes and if so what do I do?

Thanks to all of you, but I forgot to mention one thing, we have clay soil and unless we  get a pneumatic drill on the lawn we will not be able make any holes.  I'm not kidding it is as hard as rock, we are also in Kent and we do not get too much rain.

Hello, it's me again, it's all go here.  We have just had a new patio layed, which now makes our lawn look yuk!  If we topsoil over the existing grass and then lay turf will this be ok.  The original lawn is like a rock.  Ant ideas thanks

Front garden

We have for many years had a hard standing on our front garden, as we all had cars including the children.  Now they have all left home, we have decided to kango up about 12ft x 3ft and put in plants.  Has anybody got any ideas what to plant.  We do not want hedging, but something that is colourful during the winter and summer.  The sun is on the front from 11a.m and all afternoon.  The garden is also next to the pavement.  We would like plants no higher than 12-18 inches high.  Any ideas?

Thanks everyone.  Maybe I will try again with slug pellets.

Has anyone had this problem?  My mum put about 50 marigolds in pots out last week, within 5days there was not one single leaf left, just bare stems.  Has any one any idea what has attached these? Is there anything we can do in the future

New laurel?

During the recent winds and rain we have lost our back fence.  We have a very healthy laurel bush/tree.  Is it possible to take cuttings from this to make a laurel hedge to take the place of the fence.  If so when and how do I do this.

Happy new year to you all.

I have medium size fern which is at least 8 years old.  Comes up every year, very healthy, as it did this year.  I then noticed something was eating the leaves, couldn't see anything.  We went away for the weekend and low and behold when we came back all I had left was skeletons.  Looking around I noticed the earth was soft at the  crown.  I dug around a there they were lists of little green caterpillars.  What do I do or have I lost the fern
