I regularly get foxes visiting my garden with holes dug and buried food which I scout for and remove every morning to keep my dog from consuming it
They haven't fully dug plants up but I have had to plant bulbs more than once and damage to fully grown plants such as ferns missing half the fronds they should have due to being clawed off, presumably while they look for a good place to bury stuff
I use blood fish and bone mixed into deep holes without much damage but I understand the risk when I do use it, these creatures are obeying their natural instincts, you won't keep them out, I've seen foxes jump my six foot fences no problem and believe me, there is no other way to get into my garden.
One tip might be to supply an area of soft soil away from precious plants for their burying habits, my old raised veg bed was ideal for them
