cat deterent

Citrus peel might help. Spread around the area and garden. My daughter had a problem with neighbourhood cats visiting and this did help to deter.

Cat nip helps stop the mouse smell but be prepared for some very spaced out moggies.(Haven't had any yowling!)

I had a Peace Lily Alan4711 but it was not happy and eventually expired despite TLC, I think it is the draught that causes the problem, but thanks anyway. The Mother in laws tongue look as if they could get tallish Diggindoris.

Make into soup. Part peel skin, slice length-wise. Remove seeds (with tea spoon).and chop. Put in saucepan with 2 chopped spring onions and fry gently for 2/3 mins. Add approx 100grms chopped potato and three quarters pint of veggie or chicken. stock. Bring to boil and simmer until tender. Salt and Black Pepper to taste.  Zizz up if you prefer smooth. Sounds complicated but is really easy.

Don't grow Digitalis nutcutlet as particularly poisonous to cats and we have one (cat that is ) that tends to chew on anything as she doesn't see very well and negotiates the garden by smell and taste!  Same for Cornflowers Peter,

My word!  Wildflowers and bee friendlies have made a huge difference to the number and variety of visitors to our garden.  We moved here two years ago and took over a neglected shrubby type garden - some we have kept at the moment to add depth but other have gone.  We grew from seed bug friendlies and wildflowers and this year there have been loads of buzzes of varying types and butterflies in droves - none of them unusual but all of them beautiful.  They have particularly liked the Wild Marjoram, Thyme and Sage (which we let flower) .  We also let the clover grow in the lawn(?) and left white dead nettles to flower.  Calendula, Cosmos, Stocks have all been popular as well as Lavender and Verbena. Lots more to do, but we've made a start!
