<h2>I was givenThe RHS " Encyclopedia of Gardening"as a present, it is a treasure trove and it has answered all my queries. I also have all the main D.G .

Keeping Cats off My Veg Patch

Posted: 24/01/2012 at 16:33

My old cat refuses to venture farther out than the patio, unless it is sunny and warm, I was horrified to find piles of cat poo in my old stone clematis trough the other day. After I cleaned it out,(Does anyone know if catpoo is either harmful or beneficial to clematis and daffodil bulbs?)  I raided the greenhouse for thin green plant support sticks and planted them in the trough, fairly close together, so far so clean. If it works, it seems like a cheap and cheerful solution.

Help my daughter bought me a beautiful Hydrangea two years ago.

Last year it had three or four lovely blooms , this year although the foliage looks very healthy, not one single flower. It is at the back of the border,next to the pond, facing east. I have not pruned it or given it any special feed. Anything I can do to help?
