If it's green algae, I can recommend Blagdon Barley Straw extract - you can get it on line or from most GCs.  

If it's blanket weed the extract seems to help keep it down, but I also use a bamboo cane and twirl it around a bit like making candyfloss and pull it out and leave it on the bank so that any inhabitants to find their way back to the water. 

HELLO FORKERS!

That's ok then, as long as DD and BL found each other eventually 

What is this strange plant growing on a gorse?!

Hello I'm back from a lovely day out with daughter - we went to Pin Mill (the setting for some of Arthur Ransome's children's novels) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pin_Mill and had a fantastic lobster salad lunch  and a walk along the foreshore and the wooded river bank alongside all the houseboats that are moored there.

 Pin Mill, including the Adnams' pub, the Butt and Oyster 

 

Any news from BL and DD or have they both been taken by white slave traders?

Frost?

major pruning of plum tree - advice needed

Posted: 19/08/2014 at 18:02

It's entirely up to you of course, but I wouldn't risk it - especially in a season like this, where autumn is coming early and the incidence of fungal and bacterial infections etc is high. 

Can I use Tomorite to feed my lawn?

Posted: 19/08/2014 at 17:58

Tomorite contain the nutrients that will promote flowering and fruiting which is not what you want your lawn to do.

For a lawn with a problem I would use a proprietary autumn lawn feed.

Could it be down to the prevailing wind direction?
