Thought that answered the question - not ethical - definintely not.

And that's the information on here too http://www.crown-nursery.co.uk/products/ornamental-and-native-trees/f-j/#F

There are regulations in place in an attempt to save the UK's ash trees.  We are just about to have one of our large ashes felled as it is very poorly and we're really going to miss it.

Everyone should adhere to the regulations - we need to try to save as many ashes as we can and not risk spreading the disease.

Hello folks! 

DD brilliant news!  But Gertie's absolutely right - treat yourselves very gently - you've had a bit of an ordeal! ((hugs)).

I've just had a phone call from Wonky.  She says to tell you all that Matt the Plumber in Ipswich is the best thing since home baked bread - he's been working hard getting everything sorted and is still there   She's just making him a coffee and very soon she will have a plumbed in washing machine!

Because the plumber was there, the electrician turned up as well and they now have some electric points where they need them and a light in the sitting room!!!  What luxury!!!

Wonky is a considerably happier woman

Yes Snow, I remember that one - Ma used to say

'Where parsley thrives they're ruled by wives'

and she was actually quite proud of her rather sparse parsley patch - although she was undoubtedly in charge!

spiders

By the way red spider mites are red, like these


 They're very tiny, and like very dry conditions - usually found in greenhouses, not likely to be on a British lawn in the autumn.

Hi Bobbybuddy

Why do you want to get rid of them?  What harm are they doing?  Do you think they've harmed your lawn - they haven't.  Spiders don't damage lawns.  They're part of the diverse ecosystem that forms your garden, and apart from anything else they're a valuable food-source for insectivorous birds who will also eat harmful insects such as aphids in your garden.  Kill off the spiders and there'll be fewer birds to eat your aphids. 

There are a lot of reasons why you have brown patches of grass in your lawn - we need more information, and a photo of the lawn would be helpful.  Click on the green tree icon on the toolbar above where you type your post to upload a photo.
