CATS

Posted: Today at 10:45

Here we go again ,recently i said i used Jeyes spray to keep cats of Our property as iv stated time and again I sprayed it  on the  exterior boundaries  of our garden as im NOT having my partner in tears due to the disgusting mess being made of our garden which cost us a lot of money,,at NO time did I say hurt any animals ,Im now being told to be careful as cats hate the smell of it THATS THE POINT they stay away and dont get hurt ,It worked for us instead of falling out with the PR-T next door who at no time apologized for the damage to the gardens or offered to pay for the new fence WE had to errect to keep his cat of OUR gardens, he knew alright but like so many  ( But Not All cat owners )   refuse to admit there cats are a menace. WE MOVED.4711 does not hurt animals,OK 

Comfrey

Posted: Yesterday at 10:19

In case you're not familiar with comfrey (Symphytum officinale), it's a member of the borage family, a strong-growing perennial with somewhat hairy leaves 12 to 18 inches long, rising on short stems from a central crown. The flower is a pretty blue bell, fading to pink. We don't wait to see the blossoms, however, because the foliage is at its best if cut before blooming time. The plant reaches a height of over two feet and spreads to more than a yard across, but — since comfrey doesn't throw out creeping roots and hardly ever sets seed — it's remarkably non-invasive for such a sturdy being. this is from.

I only use miracle grow indoors due to the smell of Comfrey T

good luck

Very short,,,,, we also had huge Huge probs with cats untill my other half was in tears, I was advised (after spending a lot of money on fences etc to spray Jeyes ready mixed fluid on our boundaries and around any newly disturbed soil that Kate might have planted in etc,Result a few days no cats in the garden,nothing got hurt including my ignorant neighbor and  in 7 months only 2 deposits,,we have since moved to wonderful Norfolk,I recommend Jeyes and Norfolk Jeyes for the cats and Norfolk for the people, good luck give it a try.
