Strange Soil sucked out in lawn

You can actually use Growmore to feed your grass. Or that awful Chicken stuff is just as good. They both provide a good all round feed, unlike many of the special lawn feeds which give a high nitrogen boost to make the grass look green quickly so you think the fertiliser is working.

And feed the grass. Moss prefers a poor soil and grass likes a richer one.

Anyone name this bee magnet please?

I would say L. fragrantissima or purpusii or the hybrid between the two. The differences are so slight that you need a magnifying glass to tell them apart.

Plant I.D Help

There are about 20 species of Galanthus. These have a fair number of sub-species and there are some wild occurrences of hybrids between species.

I found 450 named varieties of these before I got fed up counting.

I'd like a plant like this...

How many million Knautia seedlings do you want? Spend as much time weeding them out as any weed.

Definitely a Snowdrop of sorts, but there are a lot of varieties and even a few species. Some of the G. nivalis types have a striped leaf, as do G. ewersii forms. Trouble is you need to see how the leaf comes out of the bulb, how it folds and then the flower and the markings to even try to id Snowdrops.

Looks like Feverfew to me too. Personally I prefer even one of my three day migraine attacks to the taste of it.

Moles

Sorry Edd, it is just that I have had Virus problems before from following links, so I tend not to do it and I know other folks feel the same way.

I actually caught the mole which was ruining my big central island bed, one down, three to go.
