Dad's wrong. Are they house mice or field mice? If you are a bit rural then mice are everywhere. Get a cat. The kids will love the kitten and you'll have fewer mice. 

Clematis Help

Posted: 23/03/2016 at 22:55

I'd hazard a guess you have a clematis Montana which will be coming into flower in the next month or so. They can be cut back quite hard and will regrow, which will give you a chance to add more control if you wish. As for another clematis, well it's well hidden so unless you know which type it is its hard to give good advice.

New lawn sown from seed in May 2015 - next steps

I'd scarify then apply a weed and feed in a few weeks time Rubi. Not too bad. Bit of warm weather and sun and it will look better.

Well till the weather settles nick. Get them established first, they either go well or die for me when young. Better root system better results.

It would need to be a big container Jayne. It's a rambler and they aren't always good in containers.

I'd pot them and keep frost free till they establish nick. They're apparently hardy bit I'd be more concerned about too much water first. You know what our weather can be like.

Probably for the reason that it is so easy to grow from seed.

Box tree caterpillar infestation

Posted: 23/03/2016 at 19:48

Go to the RHS website and search box tree caterpillar Delia. The insecticides recommended for treatment are there. The RHS wants to know about sightings as well. From what I've seen and read the best !method is removal by hand then spray.

Grass problem's

It's been a bit cool for grass seed to germinate Glenn. Wait till it warms up a bit. Wet soil won't help germination either. Give it a few more weeks and a bit more sunshine plus a few more degrees.

Feeling sorry for myself today

As someone who has had serious back problems the best thing you can do Msgreenfingers is keep moving. Don't lie down or at least not for long, sit for short periods only and take ibuprophen and walk as much as you can. I know exactly how it feels you have my years worth of sympathy.
