Cats causing problems

Posted: 04/01/2013 at 17:08

Hi all ,,i have just literally finished working in the front garden ,i have had to chicken wire fence  my back garden £350 to keep the cats out and they have moved into my front garden,as i said I'm very reluctantly  stoning my front garden around about £450 or there abouts when its done, the only part i need to jeyes fluid now is a small raised bed which as i said seems to be OK for now,apart from the actual work involved moving 3 ton of stone i did enjoy the creation of a different type of garden (id rather have my old soil one though) and due to the fact that my partner is extremely upset  and almost in tears with these cats its the only answer i can think of, However  i really think cat owners should instead of making all the excuses they do  about cats being free and cant be trained, should now be held responsible for the misery and cost of there free roaming animals they let lose ( the majority  anyway) on there neighbors, they should be ashamed of themselves and the truth is they know they are a nuisance and the owners are full of what i used to clean up after there muts annoyed with my neighbours you got that rightand we are seriously thinking of moving home,hows that for annoyed,

Hi Linda the best answer for you is to ask if any of the kids dads or grandads have a copy of Gardeners World issue Dec 2012 or you might try to buy it , in it they have tested  10 composters some rat proof it makes very good reading , also lots of gardeners ask a local dairy farmer for a used disinfectant 40 gallon heavy duty plastic tub ,we use them for water buts and composters  just saw the top across level  this gives access and makes a nice fitting top when turned upside down,they are non returnable and most farmers should be glad to help you ,especially with a nice letter from the kids,

good luck Linda

Hi everybody,mostly i don't spend much time watching the box in the corner  But seeing as iv just finished membraning the front garden ready to loose stone it with raised beds and some nice potted plants (all doo too cats continually using it as a toilet) i thought id just check Whats on over Christmas, and i can honestly say if i were in control of what rubbish is going to be put on I would  Sack Myself and give the job to somebody else,when i think how much they get paid its an insult its  all  the same rubbish loads of repeats and  now they put a  new tab beside it as its a different person going  to present and  talk about all the once again repeat stuff  so this makes it ? NO weather its BBC or the others its Rubbish and a disgrace Right i feel much better now and the suns just showed its face, might into Tenby for a Christmas coffeeand  oh by the way the allotments looking all ready for next year after all the great advise you gave me this year So just be carefull with that TV All have a merry one and good luck to everybody   im told next year is going to be very sunny  with rain only over night to order if required Alan 4711

Thousands of bees on allotment

we have already got a couple of Oh so soft (Avon calling stuff) for next year, this year it was brilliant against huge man eating  horse flies who really did bite big time and plagued all of us  ,until we found  this cream stuff, all our allotmenteers are very happy with its results and like one or two people said the marines abroad are also happy with it works for all of us i personally recommend it

Alan merry Christmas  all
