Can't help with the software I'm afraid - but you might find this helpful when it comes to choosing plants http://www.gardenersworld.com/plants/

Morning Verdun

A bit more than overcast here - walking though cotton wool is more like it

Special good wishes for the rose planting

Terrible Garden, Low Budget

I'd just point out that when Gardeners Boy and Gillian refer to geraniums, they mean the hardy geraniums that will grow and spread from year to year, not the tender pelargoniums that some garden centres are still selling as geraniums - they are for potting and bedding and have to be taken indoors in the winter as the frost kills them.

Good luck

Has anybody tried Echo Lawn Care?

Posted: 17/03/2015 at 06:50

The link you supplied to the website doesn't appear to work - however this is what I would use on a lawn in April/May http://www.wilko.com/lawn-seed+food/evergreen-complete-80m2-28kg/invt/0025358

When the moss and weeds have died off  (they will go black) then give the lawn a good raking to remove the moss, old dry grass (thatch) and weeds (put it in the council garden waste bin) and spike the lawn all over with a form to improve drainage (mind your toes).  Mow once a week with the blade on a medium height - the lawn will soon improve

There is a company in the USA  which provides a lawn maintenance service with a similar name - however I'm sure you weren't intending to get free advertising for them

RB - you'll have to share!!!

What is in my compost heap?

Posted: 16/03/2015 at 20:08

If it's homemade and you're aware of what you've put in it, then it's only going to be one of those ingredients decomposing in some  way.  It may well be a fungus or similar breaking down the organic matter, but it won't be harmful to your veg patch - it's just what composting is and does
