    My dad fixed that problem, using natural fertilizer, aka the dog's fertilizer, around his bushes, as people were coming through the bushes around his house to steal christmas lights that were in them at Christmas. Once he started doing that, they kept away from them. The plants grew very well later on that year . He never had any problems with plants being taken after that either. Love my dad.

    I was just thinking along those lines. Looking for something picky/prickly to put around all the pretty things.....or something that would cause an irritation/allergic reaction...assuming of course you don't need to do much in that part of the garden yourself....or don't mind wearing gloves to do so! lol

    Or once you see them taking your plants/flowers and they claim that they only took one or two, offer them something special to take with them.....a big clump of poison ivy! lol *insert evil laugh*

    The nerve of some people! I guess they are trying to save some money by stealing the flowers and not buying any.

    I would have been mad to, like she could have asked first? If someone asked me first I would say help yourself. It is just doing without permission that would make me mad

    I like your thinking.

    My bank wants me to have the money before giving me the cash...I never thought to tell them I liked the money and I'd be given it....

    It's unfortunate, but some people just feel an entitlement to anything they see. That delivery lady sure had some nerve. I hope she has learned her lesson by being caught by you and will think twice about ever doing that again.

    That's messed up. As if she didn't know any better! My 3 year old knows better so certainly an adult woman must too!

    I have the same problem especially with daffodils, they all use the excuse only taking a couple. I always say buy a few from the Cancer society.

    Holy crap. People are unbelievable. I would put up a sign in the garden that says "Remote controlled electrical fence - steal flowers at your own risk!".

    I keep my best flowers behind our privacy hedge since I've had people take them during the night (my bird feeders too). We also have a large apple tree in our yard along the fence which we gladly let anyone help themselves to but there are people that walk across our property and take other fruit as well. When you've waited all season for 3 pears to ripen and someone just comes and takes them its really frustrating. I have no problem with giving anyone a cutting or seedling of a plant/tree i grow but don't trespass and steal them.
    Lucky for me, nature has come to my defense and we now have tall poison ivy all around my property. Me and most of the members of my family are the minority that have no reaction to it but it keeps the thieves at bay
