Answer: We get this question all the time!! There is, unfortunately no sure-fire way to keep cats out of your newly-planted beds. You can try using a deterrent--sprinkle black pepper or cayenne pepper around the beds. You can also try placing chicken wire over newly planted beds--you'll have to remove it before plants begin poking through. Or you can try luring them away by planting a bed of catnip in another part of the yard. Just be sure the catnip plants are fairly large, or the cats will destroythem quickly.
