Hi. I bought a pack of 25 Snowdrop bulbs a couple of months ago and potted 5 bulbs into 5 x 3" pots and they are now about an inch tall. I plan to plant them out early next year and hope they flower, has anyone tried this and what success have you had? Do they need a spell of cold weather at any time during their growth in the pots?

Hi seamus8,

If you go to the problem solviing area of the forum and on page 2 under cats, you will find my question similar to yours with a range of ideas. I particulaly like the fuschia cutting idea as this puts on new growth, apparently.

Carolinesmith Thats a good idea about using fuschia prunings as I have quite a lot, also a good way of propogating. Thanks for that.

Thanks, as we live near to a wooded area I guess strong twigs will do the job.

Thanks for your suggestions ilovemontydon I have a rather large area of garden so thats a lot of bamboo canes. I am gradually close planting the area which seems to work, but it is between the roses where the problem mostly is so will try the cane idea there.

Hi, I have a BIG problem with cats messing on my garden. It doesn't matter if the soil is freshly dug or not, does anyone have a proven solution? Thanks.

Can anyone give me advice on deterring cats from messing on my garden. It doesn't matter if it is freshly dug soil or not they will find a spot. Thank you.
