My poor lawn :(

Posted: 04/07/2013 at 23:07

I think it needs feeding. It seems to be greener round the dog urine bare patches so the urine has acted as fertiliser. Perhaps you have rather poor soil. Lawns need feeding every spring and again with a lower dose early autumn.

Good Evening FORKERS

What a lovely little visitor, Fairygirl, a nice surprise.

I will be having my son here soon as he will be having his knee operated on soon and his wife will be at work. Luckily they don't live too far away. He will need taking to physiotherapy.

Help identifying plants

It has probably produced suckers and the white one is growing from the wild rose root below the graft. Suckers should be pulled off when young or cut off. They will weaken the plant.

It will probably take longer than you think to upload. I thought it didn't work because I didn't wait long enough for it.

Designing a Garden Centre from scratch

But Jontydoggle had that idea on the previous page. I think it's a great idea.

I would like a good choice of healthy plants at reasonable prices, tools, equipement, fertilisers, weedkillers etc a good coffee shop and a nice clean loo.

What is this?

Sorry, don't know. But photos are a bit small and don't enlarge when clicked on. I've replied to push you up to the beginning - someone may have an idea.

You can use a bit of wood ash,apparently it's good for raspberries too, but tomatoes will need tomato fertiliser as well, more balanced for them.

Hallo.

Keen your hostas look great. Do you have any advice about slugs?

My robinias flower better some years than others.

I haven't written a book. Don't think I could sit that long! I may write more today than usual because I have pulled a muscle in my back.
