fox poo on my rose
Hi, we have an urban fox visiting my garden daily and it s**ts on my precious plants. In the past couple of months, it also decapitated 4 fat buds out of 5 on my new Rhododendron, and savagely attacked my (also new) Daphne. I am not going to start on the deterrent as there are plenty in the forum already. I have tried everything and nothing worked. Well, I think the electric fence is the way to go but too much expense and hassle. I live in a town close to London and started having fox problem about 2 or 3 years ago.
Back to my problem - I found the thing on my rose yesterday (never thought the fox will touch roses due to thorns) and spent twenty minutes cleaning up with wet kitchen towel as it was probably done early in the week and all dried up. Some of the new shoots and leaves were wilted or discoloured and I'm wondering whether it could be the toxin from you know what or frost damage (we had a few nights of hard frost last week).
So my question is, will fox s**t damage plants or its growth and I'm right to clean it up? Sorry for silly question but I want to put my mind to rest.
