I bought a lovely yellow standard rose last year and to my horror, whilst there are flowers on it, in the last week all the leaves have disappeared.  I have been on a bug hunt and found nothing.  Where have the leaves gone and is the whole rose now a gonner for ever?

Scaredy cat plant seemed to attract my local moggy population.  Thought of sueing Thompson and Morgan for 'not fit for purpose'!

Has nobody else tried moth balls?

I use moth balls liberally and frequently in my borders and they seem to work.  The only downside is that I order them off the internet and the postman complains that they make his other mail stink!

Don't know why this came up but here's a smile!

I have tried moth balls, which work.  I buy them off the internet and the postman is not too keen on having them in his bag.  He says it makes the rest of the mail smell.  Too bad - some of the smelly mail goes to people whose smelly cats used my garden as a loo.  If they didn't do that I wouldn't send for the moth balls!!
