Well if I were you I would bring seed packet back to shop where you bought or send it to seed company for a refund the seed is guaranteed to germinate after that its up to you to keep them growing

Weeds in compost bin?

about a year ago, some weeds were accidently put in our compost bins - I didn't realise this had happened until a few months ago when my husband told me. Anyway, obviously I dont want to now use the compost on our garden, but is there anything I can do with it, rather than just digging it all out of the bins and taking it to the recycling centre? e.g. could I put it in black bags and leave it in the sun for a few weeks (if we have that much sun!) - would the build up of heat kill any remaining weed seeds?

Hi Putting the weeds into plastic bags is a good idea, but I would leave them for at least a year to make sure that all seed and growth has stopped and if you have couch grass leave it to decay for at least 2 years and then compost it

Most of these are from last year so should be good for planning this year and they are open to viewers outside the UK! (I cant access iPlayer due to being in Ireland).

Hi Cpb, Heathers like a neutral soil so if you were to build a raised bed of lime free compost and add lots of peat you would get a dazzling display of colour and if you want to propagate them just put some peat over the plant in the spring new rooted shoots will appear by autumn , Adrian Bloom 


Which grass seed to use???

The picture tells me you have children, so I suggest you get seed for a hard wearing grass with some shade tolerance and follow the instructions
