Something is digging out the soil in my plant pot
Recently I repotted an ailing patio rose with fresh compost in different pot with some carnation cuttings and a sedum cutting.
Overnight a few weeks ago something had disturbed the soil so I tidied it up and put some large pebbles on the soil to deter whatever was doing it. This is what I have done before which other pots and nothing had happen since.
But this morning I find that a big hole has been dug in the pot and the soil and pebbles are over the lawn. The rose had some broken branches which is a shame as I had only noticed yesterday that it was being to shoot again. Sod's law I suppose.
I have tidied the pot and this time put a layer of shingle on top.
We do have foxes in the area which are regularly in the street at night as there is an allotment at the end of the road. Or was it a cat as I have had what I assume are neighbours' cats in the garden before.
Does this happen to anybody on this forum?
Any advice appreciated to tackle this problem.
