They usually do it more when you've turned the soil over - they don't like prickly branches like holly, etc., so you could try laying these on the ground, otherwise, insert pea sticks close enough together to stop the cat being able to scrape the soil

try a clove or two of garlic.

You can't but, if you keep the soil covered rather than bare - whether this be with decorative bark or plants you will deter them. Joxor never heard of the garlic idea - where does it come from?

Where the ground isn't planted or covered try keeping it wet, they don't like getting their paws wet.

Ohh! thankyou my Mum will be ever so grateful for the many suggestions! Will try some had heard of the garlic one I must admit Juxor too but it just gets so expensive!
