That sounds like a lovely day BL, and you're enjoying making plans - nice to have a range of different types of neighbours ... a real little community

That's the problem with these mild winters ... we need sharp  frosts to kill the bugs off

Lawn cutting

Posted: 10/02/2016 at 14:38

It doesn't matter about the date if the lawn needs cutting and the conditions are right.  Don't cut it if it's wet underfoot or if there's a frost forecast within the next few days.

Otherwise go ahead, but not too short, just take a little off to start with.

Clari - just check there's no children with latex allergy ...  it's getting very common.

Mystery sprouting bulbs - can they be moved?

Posted: 10/02/2016 at 13:08

Hi

I can't see what they are from here, possibly bluebells.  I wouldn't move them now - you run the risk of losing the blooms.

However, as soon as they've flowered dig them up and move them, planting them nice and deeply.  They'll be fine. 

Don't worry, the leaves will be there for a while after the flowers die off so you won't be able to miss them. 

Where is my grass?
