It's just getting light Pat, so I've been out in my dressing gown and Crocs for a look around - can't see any damage  so goodness knows what the crashes and bangs were - perhaps next door or possibly some children's toys blowing about in the garden behind us.

Too late for lasagne?

Posted: Today at 07:07

I agree Nadia , I put scilla at the top - smallest bulbs at the top and largest at the bottom, others in between in order of size.

Good morning all  G'day Pat

I was just dozing off on the sofa last night when I was woken by really noisy strong winds and torrential rain - there were some crashes outside but it's too dark to see anything yet.  Don't suppose it was much - fingers crossed.


Too late for lasagne?

I'd go ahead with the lasagne - the flowers might be a little late but you'll still get flowers.

My only proviso is that I've never found planting snowdrop bulbs at this time of year to be successful - the only way that works for me is to plant them in March 'in the green'.  I think that by the autumn the bulbs are too dried out, which is something that snowdrops hate.

Good luck

Michael, I've answered your other post - I've never heard of Festu.

What is the problem with your lawn?  Can you give us more information and some photos so that we can try to help.

Never heard of it Michael - what is it you want it to do?

There is a type of grass called Fescue, the seeds of which are often included in a mixture for lawns - it grows well in shadier areas.  Could this be what you've heard about?

Or there's a product called Lawn Rescue which is used to treat areas of lawn damaged by dog urine.

Some photos of your lawn and more information might help us to help you

Good for your OH   They can be worth their weight in gold


As for the neighbours, why not pop a lovely Christmas card through their door - it's very difficult to be nasty to someone who's being nice to you

That all sounds lovely.

It was a very pretty Suffolk cottage, with pargetting and porch with stained glass arched windows and ornately carved bargeboards etc - near that very good pub.
