Hydrangea thief! How to stop?
My pride and joy is huge and blue. It's planted down the driveway, about 20 feet from the cul de sac. I noticed this winter that "someone" had cut out a clump of the dried blooms, destroying the symmetry of the shrub. The cutting was closest to the street, and so shielded from my view from the house. Anyone who would do this is likely to want to get more when it blooms this summer.
What can I do to prevent this? Thread wire throughout before it leafs out? Surround it by a fence (I would not want it very visible)? I'm also thinking of buying a surveillance camera that hunters use -- but what if I identify a neighbor? Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
