Keep Stray Cats Out Of Your Garden With A Little Help From
This Plant
To prevent cats from running amok in your garden, consider planting rosemary. Its strong scent overwhelms felines’ highly sensitive noses, making it a great natural deterrent.
Although rosemary may be an irritant, the ASPCA says rosemary is non-toxic to cats, so it won't hurt them should they brave the odor and try to chomp on it.
Rosemary is easy to cultivate, thrives in full sun, and becomes drought-tolerant once established. Overwatering is its main threat, so moderate watering is crucial.
Rosemary also serves as a natural deterrent for pests like slugs and snails, making it beneficial to distribute throughout the garden to help protect your other plants.
