    My viburnum tinus gives off a smell like stake cat urine after rainfall. It has brown leaf patches but I don't know if these are involved. Please tell me this is widespread and that I am not suffering from some strange aversion to cats.

    Hi I don't have the answer to your question but am amazed as my viburnum has the same smell you describe when it rains. I thought it was cats but now I am guessing that means it's an issue with the plant as it's too much of a coincidence. Let me know if you find out the cause and I will do the same! Regards, Rochelle

    Thanks Rochelle, now I can confound those who say it is just me.
