CATS OFF PLUG PLANTS - SCAREDY CAT PLUG PLANTS - Coleus canina hybrid X 9 Plugs Plants **AVAILABLE FROM MAY ONWARDS AS PLUG PLANTS TO GROW ON - KEEP THOSE PESKY CRITTERS AWAY FROM YOUR GARDEN - THE LARGER THE PLANTS THE BETTER THEY WORK!**
Plant breeders have been working for many years and have experimented with over 300 plants to produce this ultimate deterrent! - CATS OFF! SCAREDY CAT PLANT! Cats, foxes and squirrels will avoid the area around this Pee-off plant as it is affectionately known. This attractive plant has excellent foliage and small, attractive spikes of blue flowers in the summer. The plant shows very good tolerance to drought and cool temperatures, but protect the plant from severe frost damage. The plant releases a stench that our furry intruders, with their incredible powers of scent, can't stand when they get too close. Thankfully it only smells to the human nose when the foliage is touched! Could this be the solution to your feline intruder problems you've been looking for?
Our experience in growing this plant has also identified its benefits in controlling unwanted flying garden pests namely greenfly and whitefly and we have tested this alongside commercial crops which are prone to these infestation attacks - Petunia Surfinia, Million Bells, Sweet Peas, Tomatoes to name a few and in each trial the results have been the same and the unwanted insects have avoided the area, so even if you don't have a cat problem it could also provide an organic pest control for your valuable plants!
Plants need to be established before the smell is released and when growing on they prefer to be in slightly drier than wet compost.
Plug plants can be grown on in a frost free environment and then planted out next year as sizable specimens to do their work.
This is a really great time to start planning for next spring and by buying your Cats Off Plugs NOW you will be rewarded as these plants need to be as large as possible to have the maximum effect.
It is extremely easy to these plug plants by simply potting them on and placing on a sunny windowsill and watering lightly once a week.
