      Any suggestions on how to keep a dog from eating the stems of blackberry’s? Our dog has taken a liking to the stems of my new plants and have them down to next to nothing. He’s also decided he doesn’t like pansy’s. He’s dug them out of a planter and left the other flowers alone.

      I”m trying to get the stems to reroot theirselves. I’ve put them in a potato with a hole in it and planted them in dirt. Heard it works for roses so I thought I might as well try it.

      Not sure. I’ve read before that dogs dont like citrus smells, so put peels arounds your plant and marigolds deter dogs as well as other critters. Wont hurt to try I suppose.

      The main one that he was eating was my blackberry bushes. I think he finally got the idea that I do not want him chewing on them. I used amonia on the area outside of the plant (about 2 feet away) and the next time I caught him with one of the branches I smacked him with it. I hate to hit any animal but I was at the end of my rope with him. I put over $100 into all those plants and he was slowly killing them off. He hasn’t went near them since and he still loves me so I guess maybe we came to an agreement about my bushes.
