    I have several plants around my garden that I have noticed nibbles taken out of the leaves…also, I have a neighborhood cat that thinks my garden is its personal litter box…what can I do to deter? and with out chemicals if possible? I heard about a concoction of two tablespoons of dish soap in a spray bottle with water and sprayed on the plants would not hurt the plant and would keep bugs off…would this work?
