Rose changing colour......

Posted: 13/10/2013 at 09:13

Hiyu back in the summer i purchased a beautiful lilac rose called Twice in a bluemoon.

I potted it up into a large pot and more buds appeared - of which are just about to open and to my surprise - are pink.

Could this the pink rose be relative to the change in our the temperature?

Keeping Cats off of Garden - Tried and Tested Ideas only please

Posted: 07/07/2013 at 08:51

So many great ideas.

Firstly have you informed your neighbours of your problem? Its thier problems too - is it not! Do they have litter trays for thier cats?

I like the idea someone mentioned earlier that just have no ground left uncovered and plant like mad.

Chilli powder !!!!

That will make the wildlife and insects that pass through your garden suffer burns.

Please think again - theres always another option - always.

Its your neighbours that are at fault here. I would ask if they have a litter tray in their house - if they dont its not the cats fault. Responsability always lies with the owners.

I hope you find a more humane solution - i wonder what a vet would advise!

I also heard that lion dung works.

If your friendly with your neighbour - maybe see if he or she will go half?

Once i chopped up garlic and sprinkled it around the effected area. Guess what - the Garlic started to grow where one of the cloves wasnt fully chopped. I never used it for cooking. lol

Being a cat lover and keen gardener i can tell you Fushia's are poisonous and very deadly to a cat. Please dont act in haste.

I recommend owning a cat is half the battle won - failing that - a water pistol should work. If you have tin foil rattle that - cats hate the sound of it.

The plug in devices - save your money - cats walk straight past them.
