Hi G1 ,that info is really interesting as I also found that I was allergic to Fig tree sap,it took me almost a year to learn this as I was growing figs and taking cuttings,the cuttings and trees are a gem to grow and the fruits a cracker but the sap can be really strong and burn the skin with blisters and rashes, its gloves now .Good luck

Plants to edge a bed to scare cats off

Red dont spray on any plants and no bulbs or tubers were harmed just the borders edging, you can use the ready to use one its easy  or follow instructions on the fluid, doesnt need to be strong as its just the smell animals hate, our last garden took about 2 weeks to get rid of them and I sprayed every 3/4 days then once or twice a month if necessary they soon find somewhere else to go Hopefully there owners ..

Hi Red, I wish i had a shilling for every time people ask the cat question, long story cut very short spray around the areas the cats use with ready mixed Jeyes fluid or your own mixed, animals including own pets  dont like the smell and stay away might take a couple of sprays but it works,No animals hurt they just stay away from it. And if you disturb the soil spray again.I spray around  our boundaries every 2 months it works for us, we don't get any at all and nobody upset.
