Fox Poo

I have noticed over the last few weeks what at first I thought was Dog Poo where I planted my potatoes, I was surprised because my garden is difficult to gain entrance to, eventually I checked things out, and it is a Fox doing it, can anyone reccommend the best way to stop it please.

    This helped keep cats away from my garden. They also stopped squirrels eating stuff as well.

    Easier to protect the potatoes with a physical barrier if you don't have high enough boundaries. Foxes will also squeeze under fences if they can smell something tasty.

    None of those so-called repellents keep cats out here. The only one that works is the water scarecrow. That works very well, but you have to be careful, and take them in, cover, or disconnect them when there's frost, as it bursts the connections.
    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....
