Cats in gardens

I let the dogs out if one is visiting my plot and also if handy use the hose they still persist so I mainly net off anything I hope to eat , as for a device I think you would need something to cover a large area. Most of my neiboughs have cats so theres often anew one around so just have to live with it.I'll have a look at the defender on amazon as at £20  is worth a go for a result.

Hi all,

Bought one of those cheap walkin green houses just got seeds going well then despite beening well wieghted down growbags etc the latest wind had other ideas, the plastic fittings corners and apex snapped wrecking the structure, have used gaffer tape and saved most seedling to main glassgreen house.

question anyone know of some better fittings or cheap spares or is it best to forget the whole idea even though it worked well with propergating ?

 I have been clearing the greenhouse and found a marketmore cue which had grown outof sight I suspect this (,not fully green cue) may be slightly bitter if eaten raw is there any use for this ie cook or extract seed or simply discard it?
