I said that I use wire 'cloches' to protect seed beds and that I chase visiting cats off. I also said that when I'd had my own cats I'd found that keeping a dry sand box in a covered area had helped but wasn't foolproof. I also gave a link to a thread with other methods.
The reason why there aren't many suggestions of methods to keep cats off flower beds is because it's long been established that none of them seem to work. The only thing that seems to work is to keep the cats out of the garden.
Very frustrating for all concerned I agree.
