Dog Days of Summer
Sunday, April 3
Do you have problems with dogs in your garden? If it's a neighbor dog, obviously try a fence. But, what happens when it's your own dog? Here are a few ideas of what you might do. Spread alum powder at the foot of plants the dog is known for digging up.
Some people put mousetraps upside down so that it startles the dog when they begin to dig. You can also try burying cotton balls dipped in clove oil just under the surface. For houseplants, some people have found wrapping aluminum foil over the pot to work. Find dog hobble, an evergreen shrub, in our online plant nursery.
