What plant other than Ivy to cover up unsightly lower-middle class concrete bird bath with vulgar inscription on it?

I'm sure poor old Wolf said a few weeks ago that " this is my last post" or something along these lines.

 I would be patient ...  the grass seed may not take because of the presence of weedkiller - some lawn treatments contain pre-emergents to prevent weed seeds germinating ... afraid this affects grass seed too.   However, it also contains fertiliser, so that will encourage what grass you have left to thicken up and spread.  


I would then leave it a few weeks for the effectiveness of  the weedkiller to wane and to get past the hottest months, then  in September I would give the lawn a thorough scarifying, then a good watering and sprinkle some grass seed all over.  Try to time it when the weather forecast is for a couple of days rain.  Grass seed germinates really well in September, it's the ideal time.  


Hi all , a few questions please.

It's such a shame that people with such elevated sensibilities have to endure something  as down-market as a 'communal garden'  ... perhaps we should all have a whip round to purchase Wolf accommodation more appropriate for his station in life

Good on you Hogweed   My maternal grandmother (the gardening one) took strongly against the last Prince of Wales (the one that abdicated)... she blamed him for the decline in the fashion for gentlemen wearing hats and the subsequent demise of the family straw hat factory ... she would have approved of you and Monty

Should I repot tomato?

Yes, I'd pot it on, planting it nice and deep - mine are in pots the size of a bucket ... you'll just have to do it carefully ... another pair of hands might be helpful if available
