lawn ok

Posted: 03/08/2013 at 09:53
Hi all ,just an update on feeding a very sorry lawn, a small lawn we inherited about 15 x 15 mtr was very sad ,3 weeks ago Kate gave it a shortish cut and i watered in at about 40/50 to 1 Nettle tea, the tea had been bottled and was about 3 months old, the lawn is now as it should be green on green, it took about 4 days to see a difference begin, it had had plenty of water before so i think the Tea was the answer and of course the recent rain has helped, i think a couple of feeds a year would keep it fit so a nice lawn now,Ok good luck all PS i cant upload so no pics, avagunen Alan4711

Nettle Juice

Janey 82 hi, go to Allotmentheavenblogspot.co.uk then see guides and stuff, its got nettles and comfrey, if you do the dry one ( the black one) make sure you dilute to a weak tea. or it will burn the plants as the dry way makes a very strong thick feed much stronger than the 2 gallon bucket one,

had the same prob not long ago, i gave it a 25 to 1 mix of Nettle tea and watered it well in, did the trick nice and green, grass loves it, so did the Hydrangea that was cut to ground level after 10 years of neglect,it is now 3 feet high, deep dark green very strong and hopefully ready to flower next year and free.
