Black garden after Evergreen 4 in 1.

Posted: 09/08/2017 at 14:26

I weigh out the amount of 4 in 1 needed for an area 1m x 1m and put it in plastic cup and mark the level.


Then I measure the lawn and lay canes along the edge at 1m intervals.


Then I use the marked cup to scatter the appropriate amount evenly on each square metre ... not terribly complicated.


I've not killed my lawn yet

And if it's any consolation, this rain will be good for them 'cos they're thirsty plants ...'

I agree NannyB ... we can't change it so I accept it and smile 


B3 I quite like Coffee Creme ... although I've never understood the attraction of Turkish Delight with chocolate attached 


The weather's going to be lovely in September ... we've booked it 


Pat ... dont' get stressed about it ... it's good to know what to look out for ... that way you have more control over events ... now spend the day doing something that makes you smile ((hugs))   Hope your OH gets over the cough soon ... I woke in the night with a tickly cough ... perhaps he's given it to me
