Hello all,

I seem to have a cat or cats that visit my garden on regular occasions to use my garden as their toilet. mostly at night i think. Of course at this time of year i have soil exposed,  they are digging up my new growth,and baby plants, i have tried pepper, crushed sliced /garlic,lemon /orange peel and limes, 'Cat off'  lion poo, vinager, plasic rolls of wire, gravel, nothing  seems to work they or it' will find a space. does anyone know if it will harm my plants? and any other ideas would be wonderful i will try anything.

Thank you

The Pieris  For cuttings take a piece without flowers usually at the end of spring and put them round the  the edge of a pot, in a peat mix (acid soil) i put quite a few in and i tuck the pots away somewhere in the garden and leave for a  year some take some don't. also i cut the flowers of in early spring the new growth is pink and very pretty. I hope this helps.

i have 2  Jacques de coubert rose bushes i bought them about 3 years ago for the beautiful smell the rose itself is white and quite insignificent after the first year they did not flower at all, i scoured the internet and was told that i was looking after them too much they dont like any feed or rich soil all very odd hopefully they will flower this year, if anyone knows of this rose i would be grateful for any advise, thank you

Whats your plans for the garden this year?

i have decided to make the garden pond bigger this year but it will have to wait untill untill all the tadpoles have grown and moved into the garden, intend to plant more cottage garden plants for the bees etc, although i have a lot one can never have too many.i would like to put up bat boxes and more nest boxes although the birds that visit ususally make their nests naturally in the bushes and clematis and dont go near the nest boxes?.
