I am new to the site and wondered if there is any body out there who have any suggestions on a dog proof garden? especially large dogs which seems to love digging out every new plant I put in the ground?
Hi Poppie,
You can try ground red pepper. shake it on the ground around the plants. The dog nose is very sensitive and the peper will discourage them from the garden. You will have to reapply after rain or watering though as it only works when it is not wet;) is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to
