Getting the perfect lawn [pictures]

Mike, it is so lovely to hear from you again; hope you are feeling better.

I have always thought that lawns are best left to men, they seem to care about them passionately, I only have a tiny one and it is the most neglected area of my garden. I simply can't get very enthusiastic about a large area of green: flowers and veg just seem so much more interesting

Tuesday eve bump; no rain yet - sooo looking forward to going down to Somerset this w/end Even Flossie Flo, who spent last weekend at Wagging Tails, her Spa Hotel and had a shampoo an set and manicure, is excited about spending next weekend there as she gets to socialise with other dogs without having to be my bodyguard. Of course this am, when we went for a walk she rolled in UNBELIEVABLE s...t and had to be showered on our return.

Dove, thank you for posting those lovely pics. Loved the flowery top worn by that strange woman.

If you are meeting up with BB in mid Lincs at any time, I could make that

A keen lawn man I know said that his life changed when he got one of those devices that distribute the lawn feed mechanically; it is so much more accurate

What veg are you growing this year?

AllotmentMax, I treat French Beans as semi-tropical; germinate in g/house or heated propagator or warm windowsill with cling film or other plastic cover on top. I would not expect much from soil outside. Though I can't see your location, you could be in the Channel Islands

Mark, I too have heard that potatoes will loosen up clay soil, but don't grow them or tomatoes in the same place next year

Philippa, have grown Black Kale before, don't know if it was Tuscan; brilliant crop!
