    Plant more so they there are enough for everyone.

    Take it as a complement that they are good enough.

    Or put a sign up saying "Flowers 50c each". - that way they can pay you for them or it is theft.

    IF a four year old raids your garden, tell the parents who will be mortified and apologize profusely.  For older kids, give them the garden hose treatment.

    depends if you leave the flowers to die , or pick them yourself for the kitchen or lounge , as long as there being used , they can help themselves .

    Take off some of the flower heads and crazy glue them onto weeds...all gardens has weeds.  That way they will be helping you while they are trespassing. Otherwise plant closer to the house, not near the road.  Leave that for the dandelion stretch.

    That is horrible and it is theft!

    I would create a whimsical sign that says


    I would flip out if people were taking off with flowers from my garden! To me, that is like stealing vegetables from a garden! Not nice!

    Your property, your flowers. That is stealing. Put out a sign or move them, trim them back, or set up a guard wall around them.
