For those waiting for petunias, something completely different...

Coleus Canina has been named the Scaredy Cat plant because of it's unique ability to deter cats from messing up the garden!

The ultimate cat repellent that also provides foliage colour and light blue flowers in the garden. It has a scent that Cats and Dogs do not like but which is non-offensive to humans.

Not sure why cats equate raised beds with toilet but hopefully these plants may help to persuade them otherwise.

Dosent work had these last year.

Was about to ask if these actually work - there seems a lot of doubt online and links to the Citrosa which allegedly repelled mosquitos, but actually just sold a lot of useless geraniums.

Be aware that this is a member of the mint family .... "These plants root nearly effortlessly from cuttings or from just touching the ground" so probably spreads a lot(!) and is also a light-seeker, so will get very leggy if in a low-light area.

Had these last year, and didn't stop a cat sitting in amongst it trying to get my fish!

I bought these and they spread like wildfile (in a good way) but sadly cats don't give two hoots.
Bought pepper powder and scardy cat crystals - didn't do dot.
Bought fence spikes..... cat's now walk v-e-r-y slowly over them.

I don't have a cat but my garden is full of their $h!t and i'm fed up of it.
I have a dog, who when he sees them (he's getting on) chases them but they still come in my garden.

Apart from a gun any other tips????

Anything that ***** up their sense of smell really, if you can get close enough then eucalyptus oil in a water pistol works great. Dilute it down, spray the fecker and it'll bug them for ages.

we have our own cat, and i have to say, we do very well in the back garden and no poop from him or other cats (nearly 9/10 cats wont mess up their own territory, they'll spray/pee but not poo)

we do get poo in the front though and i tried these plants last year and they didn't work

Well we use used tea bags with olbas oil put on them, however been told limoncello oil (stuff to keep mossies away)works

we think t tea bags r working but u have to top them up - thy degrade aswell so gud for environment

I was told if you can deter them from there route (usually takes a wk or two)then they will use a diff route for awile so it's a case of keeping eye on stituation n start freshening the tea bags with olbas oil

also put holly leaves around the mud they hate those as well

good luck

Carpet gripper strips just under the soil/bark seems to work, but they just started using other areas. Anadin disolved in milk should do the trick. ☺
