Cats!!!

the two methods we use for cats are Catshoo ( scaredy cat plants ) they are okay until you brush past them and then the aroma from them is not pleasant they grow in pots aswell as flower beds and if it is a paved area just brush over with a diluted solution of jeyes fluid once a week .

hamamelis ( orange beauty )

Posted: 16/06/2012 at 15:40

They're in a pot, as we only have a courtyard garden. Plus with the amount of rain recently they've been almost drowned, Im really at a loss as to what else I can do to save them.

Any suggestions . . . . . . .
