I took good precautions when starting out with the Square Foot Garden as I knew normally a cat will come and dig up anything you plant within seconds of you doing it, or so it would seem. So far I have had no problem, I covered the beds with wire netting and after a bit I even removed all of that as the cats (like the slugs) didn’t seem bothered.
For some reason, a cat (not ours as our cat thinks an energetic time is going from the sofa to the chair) seems to like spring onions. Spring onions have not been a success for us, we planted three squares and none of them have done anything amazing. A cat has finished them off though by digging that square up a couple of nights ago. I put wire netting over the square and also covered other bare patches just in case, and last night the cat did it again. Same square. I came home tonight and the cat this time has managed to get under the wire netting and dug…. the spring onion square – again! We seem to be looking for a cat with a taste for spring onions then….
