The North wind doth blow...bitingly cold in the open. Did odd jobs in the garden this morning - thank goodness as now...sleet and snow and the biting wind. Set until the weekend. Gloom...gloom.I can hardly read this - hope you can.

 Grey skies clearing...doesn't mean a lot...back in form early start..cold but kept going...now for a cuppa and must tackle the shed..do I really need all those pots?

By hand or machine?

Good morning  I found that scarifying worked for me.

Not easy or a pretty sight but once the moss revealed bare patches...I then sprinkled not-peat compost on those parts (looked good - black against the green!) and carried on with the lawn as usual (mowing, edging and feeding - lawn food). It took two seasons, spring to spring, but didn't look too bad in subsequent summers. Now down to a small patch of clover - where that came from is a mystery.

Just back in for a cuppa from an early morning session as it looked like rain - trimmed lawn edges and hope to mow later today... if it doesn't rain.

Good luck. keep in touch as to how things work out.

Hellebores - when to feed

Posted: 20/03/2013 at 08:34

I've only grown red hellebores and they are in pots - small garden - so move them around out of the east wind and shelter in shade for summer. They seed in the ground or the pot so plant up when I see two or three small leaves. To be honest I ignore mine and am always suprised when they continue to flower - hence the near panic to realise that I have't been feeding them. Will do so today - add to list. Local garden shop has all white helebores for sale - will enquire their secret of success.
