Fast Growing Hedge

Posted: 12/07/2017 at 17:27

My hedge in my front garden grows twice as fast as my neighbours hedge,I remember there was some spray to reduce rapid growth I think there is a name for it and I wondered if I would be able to get it in the big stores

I tried Miracle Patch Grow on my lawn I raked a lot of moss from it and so there is big area of bare grass,I covered the area with Miracle Grow compost and I applied the patch grow.I did this just over two weeks ago and I just about see some blades coming through but not too many is it early days to see progress

Getting back to my problem I noticed on You Tube in Canada a front garden was in bad shape these men mowed the lawn and put piles of compost down and covered the whole area so there was no grass showing and then they reseeded it, they never showed if it worked.

Maybe a bit early to sow seeds we had a frost this morning but will tackle the soil which is very wet at the moment

I have a small lawn but I have a lot of moss in it this year, so I treated it with moss feed and weedkiller I racked out the dead moss but my lawn looks bare.I just wondered If I should dig over that bad area and  throw some seed compost over it with grass seed.

Clematis Pruning

I have a Bees Jubilee Clematis in a pot which never as many flowers I just wondered if I should put it in a bigger pot is it best to prune it after flowering,and with the summer flowering Clematis when is the best time to prune I must say I am dissapointed with the ones in the pots as opposed to the three I have in the borders
