Yellowing lawn

crazyf, could it be that the local dogs are using it as a loo? though that would tend to make it patchy yellow.

Help to find Narrow Weeding Hoe.

I got a very tiny hoe from a car boot sale; in fact I've had several good buys from the same stall holder over the years. But my hoe is not angled, though it does work well.

Lyn, what a wonderful talent to have! I didn't know that marble could be restored like that.

Tiny garden plot

Tracey, you could also consider making your own compost, to add to the soil; if you decide to go this route, there is loads of advice available.

Get a cheap soil test kit, from a local Garden Centre to find out the exact PH. Then post that on this thread and the advice will flood in. As far as I know, Lime does not last very long in the soil; a lot of gardening books say; don't bother adding lime, simply grow things that don't need it, so I am wondering if the soil is still 'limey'.

Snowdrop Walk - East Anglia

I've been trimming the 7' tall Leylandii  which stops the car fumes from poisoning my veg bed. The dog was very keen to help, but have told her to concentrate on checking if it is rats that are nibbling the beetroot.

Is it very muddy at the snowdrop walk? Is it welly terrain?
