Well we have finally given up trying to grow a lawn in our side garden it is so wet and gets no sun, yesterday we covered it with a membrane and gravel. I need to know now what to plant in it that will cope with the conditions, something for the spring, summer and possibly something that will look good in the winter.

Thank you for all your replies, I also love cats and would never hurt them, so will not be trying Jays fluid. I will try the other methods instead.

I think I read last year that Tea bags soaked in Jays fluid kept cats off the flower beds, do just put the tea bags onto the soil, could the jays fluid damage plants

I find a bessom works really well on small areas of gravel, it doesn't get every leaf but certainly sweeps the bulk of them together to be picked up, I have large gravel

Butterflies & Bees

I have had so many butterflies in the garden this summer, this morning the Buddleja had 21, the Sedum had 8 and there were 7 or more on the walls of the house, they are here all day. The Echinacea has had as many as 3 bees on each flower, this hads happened every day throught the summer.
