New lawn

Posted: 21/07/2016 at 19:42

Mark , I'm going to throw a spanner in now, sorry Verdun, there's not enough sod to trench there. It's too sporadic so you wouldn't get a sod to turn. Depending on what's been burned you're going to have an imbalance of nutrients or poisons in the soil. Wood burns will give you high potash, anything else you'll have contamination. Sowing anything on that may be a bit fraught. I'd seriously consider skimming off the top few inches and import fresh topsoil. It's not a large area so perfectly do able. Good new topsoil would give you peace of mind as well. Stoney soil won't matter, youll be less likely to suffer from moss. But good soil gives good grass and rectifying mistakes is always a lot of hard work.

I use it for shrubs and roses Logan. They do establish better I must say so it works as far as I'm concerned.

Lavender bushes

I'd move them after flowering. Trim them then move. Plants always grow extra roots after flowering so that would be the ideal time.

Plant or Weed?

That's not caper spurge. I have no idea what it is though. Post a picture when it flowers.

My grubby hands

A good nail brush gets rid of the stuff between, under and around the nails. I don't use a hand cream, soft hands means too many thorns to pull out. Apparently scrapping soap under your nails before gardening works as well.
