How do I stop cats from using my plant pots as litter trays?

United Kingdom Gb

I have lots of potted plants and wondered if anyone knows how I stop my cats from using them as their litter trays..?
Would appreciated anyone's help....:) thx



Cut up some orange and put on the pots, it does work,I have been told.

I actually use orange peel and put it on top of the soil. My cat has now learned to stay out of the plants. Cats don't like the citrus smell.
Good Luck!

I bought some lion dung pellets recently and spread them on my back lawn i have not seen any cats since, and i have got a lot of pellets left if i see any cats in the coming months.
