Can you identify this plant?

I think you should get some fake flowers, stick them on, take a photo and send it to the present giver, to let them know the recipient has been taking good care of the plant

Every time you walk past the raised beds, bang loudly  on the sides with a stout pole - it gives them a headache and they hate it - they won't want to set up home there if you make it uncomfortable for them. 

Also keep the soil damp - the reason they're in raised beds is because they've found a dryish spot. 

Good luck!

Wont go without a fight....
