Cornmeal sprinkled over the root area of roses controls Black Spot. It can also control Algae in ponds.


Viewers problem:

Honeysuckle plant leaves have been eaten by insect. How do I treat them?

Slugs and snails


Try used broken egg shells



Viewers solution:

The best solution for cats (and great fun too) is a Supa soaker water pistol. This is totally harmless to the cats but they really hate it. Eventually you only have to appear at your door with the Supasoaker in your hand and all the felines in the vicinity will rapidly disappear. The really clever cats will stop visiting your garden. Have fun!! Recommended by the RSPCA.
