We have just been sent back from Singapore in the middle of our holiday cruise. Voyages of Discovery and Swan Hellenic have ceased trading. We should get our money back as they are ATOL registered but advert in RHS mag The Garden will not happen.

Two months ago someone on this forum advised to get a cat deterrant that was recommended by the RSPB.
Catwatch RSPB approved. Mains adaptor kit because the batteries run down fast.
Catwatch £54.95. Adaptor kit. £15.95
i know this is expensive but I have not had a cat or Squirrel in the back garden since. Could be that they have gone elsewhere by some other reason, but after the shock of buying I am pleased not to see the cat again. Main@conceptresearch.co.uk

Don't forget the lovely rich fruity smell of quince. Put in a bowl in a warm room and for two weeks they with fill it with fragrance. Thats if you haven't turned them into jelly already.

thank you all, problem solved. I am told it is the inner of a device smokers use to help them stop smoking. It must have fallen out - hope they realise something is missing.
Could have been the start of a good mystery novel, couldn't it.

Walking out at night I found a phial. 4 cm long and thinner than a little finger, thick clear plastic with a stainless steel top. 3/4 Filled with an ambler coloured liquid. You cannot access as the top may have been broken and all that remains is a fitting. Looks like thick oil. Doesn't have any perfume odour.
inscribed on the top was VNO 6% G94A6EO5052.
Anyone know what I may have found?

Excellent. Thank you -in my old hilliers book it didn't actually say for ruscifolia that it was fragrant.

earlier this year I bought the above. It's lovely foliage and red berries are a winter delight. Can I expect it to be fragrant as well. My hope is that it will be.

What a wonderful opportunity. All the growth coming on to your side has been removed so you don't need to see to it And keep cutting it back. Cannot understand for the life of me why a neighbour would come over and remove all the branches he can't see. If you need a cheap option to keep you going till later, how about some ivy cuttings to grow up the trunks of the hedge. they usually adapt to any situation. And are fast growing.

Many thanks For the info. Sounds as though I need to have a chat and find out. I have never seen milking herd only bullocks for fattening so may be ok.

i am in South Devon on the coast quite Windy from the sea but rarely frost... Our house wall faces south west and we grow peach and apricot. Before we errected a veranda we had plenty of fruit but had peach leaf curl. If you can protect in spring with a plastic sheet they should be trouble free.

advice again please.
We have a large load of well rotted cow manure ( friendly farmer nearby provides). Are there any problems with using cow manure i.e. Hormones, antibiotics etc. Our soil is almost pure sand and we will be using it for vegetable growing.

Thank you all for your support
. D T Brown have said i can return for full refund of the product and that is what I will do. VItax seems a genuine product, will have a look at that.

I cannot understand why the email address and web page stated on the bottle are incorrect.
looking at the label it looks like the one you know about called Vitax but the name is Growing Success.

Thank you Berghill,
i think it is a bit expensive if it's just soap, I've got plenty in a hand wash bottle that is much cheaper.

Hi, does anyone know what the
ingredients are in Winter tree wash. Growing Success are the manufacturers. Unfortunately D.T Brown Did not find out what it contains. The email address. email@example.com are not responding and the web site www.growingsuccess.org.uk do not bring up any results for me. Can anyone help as the price over £12.00 a bottle seems on the highside For something I cannot find out about.
