Petunia's DON'T close before they die, closed buds should be a new flower, the dying go limp then brown. Anyway if you cut a few off by mistake there'll be plenty more to come.

Will wood bark as a mulch cause nitrate deficiency?

Posted: 25/06/2015 at 20:04

Actually it's a myth. Recent scientific data has shown it has no significant effect on the nutrient levels in the soil. Bad soil management by adding chemicals and additives to the soil cause far more damage than bark which is a natural material and breaks down over time adding structure to the soil. I can't find the link for the recently published material, but it does have plenty of scientific evidence to back it up. I use bark in quite a few gardens I work in and based on a layman's point of view I see no significant difference in plant health than other gardens. 

Grass and slabs...

Steve, edging is loathsome but there's no easy fix or machine that makes it easier trust me. I'm currently edging 80m of lawn in a clients garden, which has been neglected and although some bits can be strimmed, most has to be done by hand. It's just one of those tiresome tasks we have to do. If anyone invents a machine to do the edging, they'd make millions and I'd buy one. Raising the slabs will make a difference, but you'll risk your mower blade if you run over it.
