If the garden is damp and shady it will have frogs ...... as has been said, give them somewhere to lurk where the cat can't get at them and at least they have a chance .... I think it's your best option, coupled with keeping the cat in at night.

It's not good for cats to be out at night anyway ...... it's when most accidents happen, not to mention fights with foxes and other cats.

Unless you're managing a bowling green I can't see that it should cause any problems. Don't cut the lawn too short is the usual advice.

When I was weeding the Sunny bed yesterday I noticed lots of self-seeded cosmos ... Obviously my dead heading wasn't that thorough last year ... But I thought they needed a bit of heat to germinate? its been chilly here until this week.

I think you just need to be patient. Maybe some Fish, Blood & bone fertiliser and a good watering too?
