Since no-one has mentioned it. There is a gadget on the market which you plug into the mains (There are battery operated ones too) which sends out a high pitch sound which distracts cats from coming into the garden.

Place in the garden at about three feet off the ground, ie a post or fence.

I have a few in and around my garden and I find they work a treat.

Hi Fonzie - can you tell us the name of this product? Thanks

I also struggled to find the search box!

It would make sense if there was a separate 'search the forum' box; not only would it be easier to find, but it would then be in line with all other online forums, which tend to have this facility.

Anyone who uses other forums regularly will be accustomed to having a search option within the forum itself.

For bright plants I would really recommend Senetti as they have masses of stunning colour, insects love them and they flower right through. Would look great among some evergreen shrubs like lavender and rosemary.
Also recommend Osteospermums, tough flowering plants which keep going on through the season and will come back each year if in a sheltered enough spot.

Making a cold frame and where to buy a manger.

If you're after waste wood, window frames, old doors etc, check and see if you near one of the wood recycling shops around the UK

Really useful for old scaffold boards for raised beds, and they make things too like planters, and maybe a manger!

Also, any tips on how to look after the one shoot that has layered itself? Am tempted to cover with more compost ...

Thanks Kate

I did water during the very dry spells in the autumn. I have around 200ft of east facing wall with plants all along, but this is the only loss.
