Hedges - anyone else noticed....

Cat Poo on my raised veg beds

Posted: 20/03/2015 at 17:36

Hello I had a problem with cats using my garden as a tiolet , somebody suggested putting cut teasel flowers down and I am pleased to say it worked , fortunately they grow in abundance on our stream bank , I would have thought holly would be just as effective and looks nicer than netting 

I did suggest to the O/H be get our own cat but that was vetoed

best of luck
