Massive lawn help

Posted: 30/04/2012 at 12:19

There may have been too much soil covering the grass - it is normally sown virtually on the surface, which is why birds eating it is such an issue.

Sowing Poppy Seeds

No, if you cover thye seed as you describe they won't germinate.

Pull back the bark, rake the gtround lightly, sow the seeds, rake very lightly again and leave the bark off. You'll also need to make sure that the surface of the soil stays damp until they germinate.

Talkback: Plants - planting an acer in a pot

Depends on the acer, but probably not. They normally grow in the shade of trees, and subjecting it to the hottest sunshine is likely to burn the fine leaves.

Keeping on bulbs in containers

If you want to be sure of good flowers, give them a feed or two while the leaves are dying back. The hyacinth should be OK if treated in the same way, too, although its flowers may be a bit smaller.

Anemone de Caen

Anemones don't always grow bolt upright, but your bottom left picture shows quite thin stems, so they may have been small corms.

It doesn't matter, though - they should cheer up with a bit of sunshine, which they do enjoy.

Burying seedlings to the true leaves

I do it quite often on things that have gone leggy indoors, such as helichrysums and rhodochiton.

advice please

Yes, your lawn needs to be dry before it is cut - if it is wet, you'll gouge chunks of it. Also, keep the blades fairly high on the first cut - you don't want to scalp it.

I think that some of them were - I'm sure that they will have lost money.

Better luck for autumn, I hope!
