Scaredy Cat, Scardy Cat (Plectranthus caninus) (Coleus Canina). Go to Top of Page

Attractive half-hardy plant with grey-green foliage which gives off a strong aroma especially when touched or in the sun. The aroma is disliked by most cats and dogs. Our resident cat reacts strongly to the smell!
In summer it produces heads of pale blue flowers which also give off a strong aroma.
If planted in a container this can be moved around the garden, thus protecting different areas of the garden from unwanted attention from cats. The pot can then be over-wintered in a frost free area.
Full sun or light shade. Any reasonable soil.

Agralan Codling Moth Trap. Go to Top of Page

Codling Moths are the major cause of maggot damage in apples and pears. The pheromone used in these traps attracts the male moths which are then caught on the sticky insert. The trap will last the whole season and refill kits are available to enable the trap to be used the next season. Beneficial insects are not attracted by the pheromone.


Agralan Glue Bands. Go to Top of Page

Winter Moth caterpillars emerge in spring to feed on foliage, flowers and young fruit. The wingless female moths climb trees in October, November and December and again in March to lay their eggs. If Agralan Glue Bands are applied around the trunk of the tree they will deter or effectively trap these pests before they can do damage. Also effective against earwigs, adult vine weevil, slugs, snails and other crawling insects. As the non-drying glue and bands are pesticide free, they are ideal for organic gardening. Enough for up to 6 average sized fruit trees.

Agralan Yellow Sticky Traps. Go to Top of Page

These pesticide free traps control a wide range of insect pests, including whitefly, thrips, leaf miners and green fly in the greenhouse or conservatory. Each trap is coated on both sides with a non-drying 'hard' glue and hung up with the hangers provided the bright yellow colour will attract flying insects which will be trapped and die. The traps will last for several months but should be replaced if more than half the surface is covered with insects. The mini 'sticky' traps are suitable for use with houseplants in the home.
