several dogs just like to excavate and no subject what, you can't keep several plants. I've skilled this with my dogs. I replaced a couple of tiny trees spoiled by a freeze a few being ago with explode crape myrtles. The next day, I came residence to the plants dug up and dried up out. I had to return with 2 extra new plants. The subsequent day, I came home to them dug up and dried up out, yet again. The dogs were scolded, of track, but we didn't want to squander, yet, 2 extra plants. So, I planted the latest crape myrtles in great containers with a few annuals. It isn't what I actually wanted for the scenery, but, this is a blemish on the exterior of my garden entry, so the container fixation works fine. Planting in containers and raised beds can be a superior solution for custody plants off the earth so that they aren't dug up, occasion and time again.
