Lawn in a bad way! Help!

For supply only artificial grass price ranges from £4 per square metre right through to £35 per square metre.

Of course the better quality you want the more you pay.

What plant other than Ivy to cover up unsightly lower-middle class concrete bird bath with vulgar inscription on it?

I don't have any toy alligators but I'm sure I remember seeing some large dinosaurs in pound stretcher

(for all you other upper middle class chums who work for a charity and thus receive next to nothing by the way of wages but isn't it so good for your soul ... pound stretcher do branded biscuits at heavy reduced costs. Its a little intimidating the first time you go in there and keep your hand sanitizer close by but its ideal for not loosing face at the office meeting and still having the budget for pims).

I bet if I get the craft glitter spray out I could create quite the focal point for when the church ladies come to visit to discuss the harvest festival celebrations.

Leasing plots of land for gardening

Cheers Dove. I'm not against the idea of leasing; am against the idea of taking advantage.

Shall I get Dove to sit down and read the "how babies are made" book to you? ;) 

Congratulations you're a grandma!

What pest would cause this damage

Sink a plastic glass into the ground. Fill half way with cheap beer; the slugs are drawn to the beer; fall in. Then get too drunk to climb back out ;)

PDoc; I have floating rubber ducks in my pond. Maybe I need to invest in a duck house for them.

Morning all!

The kettle is on; I'm already half way through my Second cup of tea. Bacon is in the fridge if anyone wants to get that going.

His lordship is off to play in the man cave this afternoon so I will get chance to potter around the garden once I have got all the washing out. 

Hosta: 23'C and I'm already starting to wilt!

Jamie; I've had entire plants lost to a slug overnight. :(

Pear Leaf Disease

Posted: 08/07/2017 at 22:18

FFluffy; I thought I had similar with my pear tree.

Unfortunately I was told all you could do is trim the affected areas (but not so much as to harm the tree) and leave it to sort itself out.

I don't think it harms the tree overall.
