scaredy cat plant, does it work

Posted: 16/06/2014 at 16:37

I have two cats who seem to like using their own garden, to protect areas that I don't wish them to use I place skewers (the wooden type, once the plants have grown up you don't notice them and it keeps the cats away, I have now managed to train them to one area which makes it easier for me to clean up.

above is a plant pot in the house that my little cat liked to use when my back was turned, the skewers persuaded her to move on!

Me too, I have Tradescantia blushing bride a little further along the boarder that is doing a good job of filling in space (and keeping down weeds) and looks glorious this year. I do have another plant I need help with (yet another gift) but not had chance to take a photo yet.... don't go far!

Thanks again!

Isn't this lovely

Thanks Nutcutlet, it does look like it, it has spread a little from last year so it can stay!

could anyone help me with identifying this succulent. Another gift that I popped in the garden last year but it never flowered. (please excuse weeds.... I have been ill for the last 10 days and no gardening has been done! )

Easiest way is to put cuttings in water on the window sill, not now though, but about September when its cooler. They root very quickly, trouble with potting them up first, if they dont take, you have wasted time and soil for nothing.

I agree with Lyn, I tried for years with the 'potting them up' way and failed everytime, an old family friend suggested the water on windowsill route and it worked a charm, I have 3 plants in the garden ready to flower that were attached to another plant last year!

Thanks Berghill, I think the rounder leaf confirms it.

I have a succulent that I was given last year in a very sorry state, lots of trailing stems with no leaves, it has flourished in my garden, in a pot in a shady corner. I have no idea what it is. It is just finished flowering but I hope it is still recognisable.

 Thanks Sara
