These are great if you have cats who mess your garden up.
Put an end to cat damage! This attractive half hardy perennial has silver-green foliage and light blue flowers, but it's the fragrance that's the secret weapon - indiscernable to humans, it's highly repellant to cats (but doesn't harm them). Height 60cm (2').

Do these things work? Am very tempted due to neighbours cat.
Thanks

They do work, i was skeptical and wanted to dust the air rifle off but the other half said her cats deserved another chance, (how many?!) We grow a lot of our own veg and so far have only been finding potatoes on the fork end, so ...

I find that a better solution is to dig a hole in the garden and then when the cat comes by, hit it over the back of the head with the spade and quickly bury it in the hole.

or hold it at gunpoint and make it dig the hole CASINO style.

Gonna get some of these, nice find OP

Cool - thanks

I once saw a cat dig a hole, use it to cr*p in and then bury it. Cleverest cat I ever saw:)

:thumbsup: But this one was in a JCB:whistling:

What sort of 'range' do these plants have? I have a big garden, guess I'll need lots?

:lol:

Why is it that cat threads inevitably attract the hard men of HUKDs?

You can just see them all staring in their mirror De Niro style.

You talkin' to me tiddles?

These are cheap. I paid £2.95 each although they were probably bigger. Not too keen on the £3.95 postage though and too far from Devon to collect (don't know if they even have that option).

Good find though.

this plant is usually known as the "**** OFF PLANT"im not joking GOOGLE and see for yourself.

Best deterent is get your own cat.

Love cats but if they start craping in the garden they get the hose.

p... off not f... off?

Isn't it better to put a plastic pop bottle with a little water in next to your prized blooms?

Not sure where that idea came from but remember seeing dozens of gardens with this bizarre idea in them. Looked like the aftermath of a pre-teens party :thumbsup:

Dont get stargazer lillies apparently the pollen from these flowers can kill a cat! Amazing really

All my mums cats have done this, I thought it was normal behaviour, shame my neighbours cats dont!
I thought getting a dog would stop them, but our pup just wants to play with them not scare them away. So next pet is to get a kitten!

thanks for posting - we were just talking about getting some of these a couple of days ago to stop the 6 or 7 cats that live around us from sh*tting on the back lawn, in the borders round the front lawn, and in the corner of the drive, which smells rank when the sun is out.

I never particularly liked cats anyway, but now I hate them with 4 years of crap all over our gardens. Have spent lots on trying to keep them away, but now if I see them in our garden they get an open plastic bottle of water lobbed at them, hard (they actually look like monkeys when, terrified, they try to "swing" out of the garden!). Any sh*ts I find also get lobbed randomly over the fences into a cat owners garden, and when I'm really annoyed and know which cat it was, the sh*t gets left on the owners doorstep or by the car, drivers door.

If these plants don't work, my next step is to smear the sh*t on door handles, and all round the cat flaps.

And yes, I do think I need help.

I made the mistake of scaring them away. They just keep coming back. Best bet is to befriend them so you can catch them and put them in the boot. Then go for a long drive in the country and let them out. Or speak to someone who keeps pigeons, they usually know what to do...!

If you have fences you can sprinkle essential oil - lemon works best - round the top and on any gravel etc. Cats really hate the smell. You don't need much, just re-do it every time it rains for a month or so and they get in the habit of going to someone else's garden! We tried this to get rid of a tom cat who sprayed all over our garden furnitute on a regular basis. It worked really well.

Put anti burglar paint (the stuff that never dries) on the tops of fences where you know the cats climb over, makes a real mess of their owners carpets...:whistling:

Someone just recommended carpet grippers on tops of walls and fences. I think that's a goer!!

Also, my missus' favourite flowers are Lilies. 2 birds and all that...

You can only do this if you put up a warning sign.

Don't use carpet grippers, if someone injures themselves on them they can sue you for damages; even if they were trying to break in and rob you or had no business trying to climb your wall/fence!

I had loads of these plants and didn't find they worked in the slightest to keep cats out, they happily walked up to them, smelt them & brushed past them! They aren't half hardy either, the first frost will kill them unless taken into a greenhouse for the winter.

Lilies all the way then!!! Hopefully will be a far more effective and long term method against the cats while allowing the burglars the freedom they require to rob us blind lol!!

Must be intelligent cats round your way....

I love cats but am another who is sick of the neighbours cats using my garden as their personal toilet. If there is any chance of these plants working i'm willing to give it a go, even with the postage cost. When the neighbours have approx 30 cats then you can imagine just what it is like.

Better deal is:
£4.49 for 5 or £8.49 for 15 and you can avoid p&p:
