Re: Noise emitters sound good!
- Thanks Matt and Wim and all - Surely cats are what I need (our
Nepalese moggies are careful not to tread on my ferns! - paerhaps they
know what's coming if they do!). I'm after religious shrew-repellers,
which might have to be super ultra-VHF-UPS-sonic!
So I'm still pretty handy with the old hockey-stick stomp routine
when they move out and about - but I will certainly look into a
repellent shriek-machine if I manage to get to Britain. I also want
some of those eel-worm eggs to tickle up the local chapters of snails
a bit and keep 'em on, or rather, off their toes.
But if this Winter's Water crisis is as bad as they say it will be
I dare say I won't be having to bother much more! Let's see - maybe I
can allocate my shower-ration to the ferns instead, surprise surprise!
Anyway thanks for all the advice on these modern gadgets I'd never
even heard of. Amazing state-of-the-art simple horticulture has become
in Britain over the last 20 years or so.
P.S. There's been some correspondence about Nephrolepis recently - I
happen to have picked up a variegated strongly yellow-streaked and
flecked N. exaltata (or ?N. cordata) cultivar in Myanmar, which is
growing well - in fact running out of the pot in all directions. Is
this a common thing? It's evidently shrew-proof!
