Weed and feed

If I'm using similar products I usually do it when rain is forecast within 24 hours ... seems to work just fine.

As Lyn says, the weedkiller isn't immediate ... it  takes a while to work and the weeds may put on a growth spurt first.  Don't panic.  It'll be fine.    I'd give the moss at least ten days or more to blacken before raking it out.

I agree ... I like the new presenters and the longer format ... however I don't think that Mark Lane's contributions to GW have been confined to 'worthy community gardening' ... but he does do his best to promote Thrive and gardening for people with disabilities whenever he can, so perhaps it may seem like that.  He's done quite a variety of stuff for GW ... 

And Florence Headlam's main input is re 'city gardens' ... it' may well be where her experience and expertise lies .... I don't think it's all been 'community' stuff but it's understandable that some of it has been ... sadly there's often not a lot of space for individually owned gardens of any size in the inner cities and community gardens are a growing trend (sorry 'bout that
