I too had older relatives that gardened when I was a kid, and I wish I had paid more attention to them than the Grandmama grew the most beautiful climbing roses,irises,and lilies.She was a true southern lady.

Hi, Pye...I love your name. I also just saw your post on Carol's thread. Thank you for that and for your great words about the article.

I have a bit of a problem with my cats too, but I have found they don't like certain herbs, basil comes to mind, also fennel. I am trying to plant a few of those seeds as well as some wild garlic in my flower beds. It worked for my inside plants, so i thought it was worth a try outside. We will see.

I don't remember that there was much of a problem with cats when I was growing up, just rabbits, but the wild garlic always kept them away from most things. My grandmother would plant a small bed of lettuce close to where the rabbits came into the garden, and that lettuce bed was just for them. The lettuce bed that we ate from was on another side of the garden. That worked too. She just kept on sprinkling seeds and the lettuce kept did the rabbits.
Thanks again, Becki.
