Lawn Care & Treatment

Adam the only thing grass needs is nitrogen so growmore would be fine and as fairygirl says a bog standard weed and feed would be more than sufficient. You could try an agricultural supplier for larger quantities. Farmers use tons of the stuff.

Scalping new lawn, upset :(

Mick greens, that's not bad, all you need to do is level out the bumps. You cut a cross with a spade, peel back the turf and remove a bit of soil then firm the turf back in place. Firm it back in place, water and it'll recover well. You did a good job by the way.

I've planted over 50 this week in a clients garden, the greenhouse was complaining it was too full. I'm knackered .

Lantana, yes you can, although a good prune would be more effective. Tootles, yes black spot will weaken a rose so good hygiene, feeding and watering is essential to overall health.

These companies use the same stuff that's available off the shelf. They use nothing special. A weed and feed and basic lawn care will give you the same results as they achieve. They rely on people's laziness and lack of knowledge for business. I've never seen them spike or add grit for drainage or do anything other than scatter some chemicals about.

Well its Yew so it should recover. I'd keep it well watered for a few weeks and see how it goes. It's probably objected to the haircut, but it's highly unlikely to die on you.

Dave, after flowering, they recover really well so you can be as hard as you like.

Separating bamboo root for repotting

Depends on how long you you want to keep them in the pot. They'll grow quite quickly to fit the pot. Although they're clump forming they'll clump to the available space. So as large as you want them to go.
