I have to say when we mean water we're talking 20 minutes with the hose at least twice a day.


Remember to stay off it for a month while it's roots establish. There will always be a bit of the back at the start but in three weeks it'll look lovely if you can keep it watered.

SMALL LEAVES AND DEBRIS ON THE LAWN

Posted: 19/06/2017 at 15:18

Well don't I feel lazy; when the leafs and such get too much I either


1. get the lawn mower out and let it handle the debris to a standard that for my needs are acceptable


2. use these delightful digits on my arms and pick things up. I can use my twig picking time to show the neighbours the latest Pilates exercises I've been given. Exercise AND a tidy lawn; what more does an intellectual need?

APPLE TREE LEAF PROBLEM

Can you mulch the soul at all? Thinking well rotted horse manure to help stop the water draining so quickly.

Well I've managed the shopping, many loads in the washing machine, I just need to wash the floors and bathroom.


Only working four days a week is hard! I think I'll have to get another job just for a rest.


Far too warm for me to attempt anything in the garden. I can't even get near the greenhouse to top the tomatoes up with water.

I hope you've managed a few hours sleep  Hosta; glad you were in and out of hospital quickly. I visit our local twice a week and in this heat I can't be in there more than an hour else I get the wobbles and think I'm going to pass out from the heat.

Marks on tomatoes leaves?

Looks a lot like my lower leafs where I've had splash back and burnt them.

Pests eating my tomatoes!

Where are you tomatoes growing?
