It is misleading isn't it, when you buy a packet of seeds thinking that they're native wild flowers but really they're wild flowers from more or less anywhere in the world.

Good morning all 

Still no  rain here - we were promised heavy showers last night but nothing so far.  It's overcast here but they don't look like rain clouds.

But you still won't spread chafer grubs by mowing their lawn.

Chafer grubs are the larvae of the Crane fly (Daddy Long Legs) - they are the result of the adults laying eggs in the soil so can't be spread by a lawnmower. 

The best way of getting rid of them is to use Nematodes http://www.gardening-naturally.com/acatalog/Chafer_Nematodes.html 

You can tell your customer all about them

We've just had roast lamb with roasted home grown  yellow courgettes,  Chantenay carrots and Buerre de Rocquencourt beans and mint sauce all from the garden - life doesn't get much better than that does it
