Laying Turf

Jill, stick a fork into it and see how deep the compaction goes first. It may not be too deep, in which case, lift the area's with the fork, you don't need to dig it and just loosen the soil. Then go ahead with your plan. If however it badly compacted you'll have no choice but to dig it. If you don't the grass will drown when it rains.

No reason why not, perfectly good idea.

Clematis - will it damage wall/foundation of building

Clematis won't do that sort of damage, so don't worry about it.

Greenhouse exposed to wind advice needed

Posted: 02/04/2015 at 16:26

I wouldn't double the material as that may have the effect of giving you a solid wall, and 12 inches may well be too close, 2-3 ft yes, or why not get the stronger glass for the one side of the greenhouse which faces the wind. Adding glazing clips will mean the glass won't give in a wind. Contrary to belief, glass has a slight flex in wind. Making it firmer with glazing clips will reduce the flex.

Dig it up chop it into pieces with a spade and replant. Geraniums can cope with it.

Unfortunately J Parkers have a reputation for supplying such stuff. Have alook the Good Guys thread, link below for recommended suppliers which forum members have used.

You must remember you have your statutory rights, and it applies to plants, just like anything else.
