Keeping Cats Out of Flower Beds

Help! My cats are using my mulched rose garden as a potty box. What can I do to make them stop. These are not house cats, they are all strays that have taken up residence. Any suggestion will be appreciated.

Thorny rose bushes is said to keep them out. Sure, they might get a thorn. Just trim off some branches & lay them in the rows. (10/19/2007)

Had the same problem with large indoor potted ferns. I just sprinkled cayenne pepper on the dirt surrounding the plant. One sniff and they quit using the plant as a potty. The cayenne will dissipate after a bit so just sprinkle again. (10/23/2007)

I have used the orange and lemon peels myself and it works great this will also keep raccoons out as well. (03/21/2008)
