Pack of 12 'Scaredy Cat' Coleus Canina Jumbo Plugs Ready to Plant

Pack of 12 ‘Scaredy Cat’ Coleus Canina Jumbo Plugs Ready to Plant was £12.99 now £7.99
This unusual plant will help deter cats and other unwanted pests from entering and fouling your garden. Coleus Canina works by emitting an odour that cats in particular find incredibly offensive and therefore disappear back out of your gate or over the fence! It will be at its most effective when planted in a sunny spot, because the odour gets stronger the hotter the leaves become – fortunately the odour is barely obvious to humans! Coleus Canina is incredibly easy to grow and will thrive on a high degree of neglect because it is a naturally drought tolerant plant. It even has the added bonus of producing attractive blue flowers during the summer months and in to early autumn.

A very special and unusual summer flowering plant and if you have never grown it before, its one that is not to be missed!
