Has lawn food killed my lawn

The active ingredient for killing moss would probably be sulphate of iron.....this does have the characteristic of turning patches of moss black.

On the other hand I would rather agree with punkdoc, maybe you have used too much.

It's called 'chocolate spot', tastequeen and doesn't affect the eating quality of the beans.

Thanks, Lorraine.....far below their potential though.

Being sweet & mild, they do make excellent eating.

Well, I'll be blowed......an ebay ad for the same blue strawberry has now appeared at the top of this forum page.  

Beware the dreaded blue strawberry!

I do use an ad blocker, btw.

I don't believe that. 

I have photo-manipulation programmes on my computer. I could breed something like that

 

Me too.....not sure if I'd want to though.

I should be able to manage that David, I'm very familiar with the wine glass shape 

Yes, we know about your addiction, OL   .......perhaps the words 'goblet shape' would have been a better choice of phrase.

Never heard that one, OL and to be honest can't imagine what it's based on.

It is advisable to note the potential spread of each rose before you order, so you can avoid overcrowding. Overcrowding prevents free circulation of air between plants and thus causes diseases. Also to this end, when pruning keep the centre of the bush open, ie prune to a kind of wine glass shape.

Also, individual beds of one variety look much better than mixed beds.
