Preventing your cat from straying from your own garden is actually quite easy. You train it in exactly the same way as you would train a dog or a child. Take the cat for a walk on a lead - it gets sufficient exercise that way without causing trouble for others. Cats are domestic pets not wild animals and should be treated accordingly.
That's by the by tho and has been said previously on Cat threads.
As you have a new GH Sue, make use of it at this time of year. You can sow your seeds and pot on once germinated and growing well. They will do better that way as opposed to sowing direct given that you may be having to scoop up cat faeces ( and therefore your seeds/seedlings). You will have stronger plants to put in the garden next Spring with the benefit of knowing exactly what plant you are putting where for the best effect. You need to label them tho - even the best gardener looks out and thinks " What the heck is that one ?" or "How did that get there ?"
Hope you enjoy your new garden and GHouse
