Female Dog killing my Gardenia!!!???
I have a gardenia that is approx 3 years old approx 5ft tall.
It has been looking ill lately...This has never happened before. It has always looked healthy and green. I put plant food on it and dusted it with sevin dust.
The leaves look yellowish and there were brown bumps on the backs of the leaves..The brown bumps now appear to be healing. And the plant is looking greener since I put the plant food on it.
Yesterday I observed my neighbors female dog going wee on the bottom of my Gardenia...I chased her off...(no leash law) My male dog has been VERY interested in the bottom of my Gardenia for a couple weeks I always chase him away from it when he gets near....Now I know why he is so interested..(sigh)
Does anyone know how to counteract female dog urine?? Besides watering down the ground and chasing the dog away?
