Sorry you're offended Wonkywomble, I have no desire to harm cats, I simply try to make the garden unappealing to them to minimise the health risk. It disappoints me that our son won't be able to play freely in the garden and made gardening really stressful when I was pregnant.
The best solution is undoubtedly to own a well trained cat, but that's not an option for us. The memory of the one that used to live here lasted a good year though!

Orange rust like spots have appeared on my ornamental alliums but nearby chives, spring onions and shallots are unaffected. Any advice? I've dosed with seaweed.

I've noticed the bed they use is the only one that doesn't contain any sort of allium, so I've planted spring onions there, and I also use sticks as a deterrent so soil isn't bare. It's the long grass I struggle with now.

Sorry, posted in the wrong section, should be problem solving, anyone know how I can move this?

Hi

Orange rust-like spots have appeared on my ornamental alliums - the nearby chives, shallots and spring onions seem unaffected. Any tips?

 

Thanks

Yes, the rest of our patio weeds are geraniums and geums for the most part...

That's the bed that needs more perennials too. I wonder why they've not flowered the past 2 years, my weeding's not that efficient!
