One of the garlics also seems to be a bit ahead. Excuse the anti cat devises of rose cuttings and polls. We have a problem with lots of them round here using peoples gardens as toilets.

Ooh does that work? The Rose stems? I’m always looking for new ways to stop the local cats using my beds and pots as their toilet!! Hence my use of plastic cutlery!!

@bluefox23 it helps the canes make it hard for them to jump onto the beds. And anythink spiky like holly and spiney rose cuttings work well holly is perticularly affective. but i also have 2 sonic deternts. One on an end wall to keep them from walking along one wall and one in a diffrent bed that mostly keeps them out. But i have to charge it this time of year as it doesnt get enought ligjt to keep it charged. If you see them water pistols are good as it doesnt hurt them but they dont like it.
