|i have 4 red mandeville potted plants outside in a nice setting with a bench under a part/shade tree. they are doing great but my problem is stray cats are getting in them and breaking the branches. is there anything i can do to keep them off? is there a spray or something? i live in s.w. florida.

|I'm afraid a barrier is your best bet for keeping the cats out of the plants. Or you can try a temporary inconvenience by crumpling up chicken wire and placing it around the plants. Cats tend not to like walking on the wire. Hope it works for you!
