troublesome felines!

I like cats and love seeing them in gardens (including my own) but I don't like the deposits they leave .  I'm not sure why the local cats find our garden so appealing and use it as a litter tray, I get very disheartened at times as they even get in my veg trug.

Thanks Salino, I made it for Easter and it was rather nice!

It was your instructions I used to upload the photo, I had often wondered how to do it

Thanks Italophile, I am keeping the cuke warm and I wont plant him out for a while yet.

He did loose a few leaves, but has side shoots sprouting and has doubled in height.

Fingers crossed

Cucumber plant update - its not looking any worse!

Should I cut off the shrivelled leaves?

I knew they liked being warm, but didn't appreciate they like moist air - thanks Joyce Goldenlily

Milk and water for mildew, great tip - thanks Marshmello

Thanks Lilylouise

I did wonder if it was feeling the cold, so before leaving for work this morning I moved it to a warmer windowsill, I do hope it recovers.  I have never attempted cues before, good luck with yours

I bought a grafted cucumber plant at the weekend. Too cold to put outside so have on my kitchen windowsil, the leaves are shrivelling already, they look like crumpled tissue paper.

Can any one help please?

All to easy to get carried away with a drop of sunshine

I grow the strawberries in pots and hanging baskets.

Do you have a fair size garden SotonGeoff?

Ours is like a postage stamp!

Hi Sotongeoff

So could I still put the strawberries out now, bearing in mind they have been protected and the weather is so say due to get colder?

I do have other plant plug perennials outside (at the side of house on a storage box) and they all look ok, other than the ones the slugs have got.

If I were to put the strawberries out it would give me much more space.

Is it too early to start off seeds in a grow house, or best wait a while.  The sun is out here today and it makes me want to do something, though it will be dark by the time I get home from work!!!
