Hi Ken, Are you sure it is a totally bare patch? I find that mime looks bare but isn't really - it's more a case of flattened and muddy. When the ground is drier I'll give it a good raking over and if behaves the same as in previous years the grass will grow back fine.

Hey nutcutlet - sorry you still got snow where you are, I know what you mean! We used to have loads of problems with deer and all we could do was fence, fence , fence!  I don't like it cos' I prefer everything to be more 'natural' looking.

They are a pain but I do like to watch them when I can

Too late to plant Tulip/Daff bulbs?

Posted: 30/01/2013 at 19:36

I bought 50 tete a tete for £1.00 and 25 Tulip Queen of Night at £1.00 a bag each 3 weeks ago. Planted immediately, tulips seemed to go in OK but  I put the daffs in  a ditch and as I was planting, 6" down I was hitting water, Being the glass half-full kind of person I kept my fingers crossed but I can't believe the number of times my garden has beeen under inches of water in the last weeks  They were cheap so no big deal but I would hate it if they rotted away 'cos of the amount of rain we are getting

That's a lovely thought holedigger but it just might not be viable. I wouldn't expect to grow bananas in Hampshire so maybe apples are just a no-no in the Gambia!
