Dogs like it if you talk to them, but they don't mind if you have a quiet day.  They give you company on the days you don't want to see people.  You can tell them all your troubles and innermost thoughts and they will never tell anyone.  Dogs give you a reason to get out of bed in the morning, but they don't mind if you go back to bed, as long as they can do the same

I would give them a sprinkling of Fish Blood and Bone and water it well in at this time of year.  Then  I'd water them with diluted tomato feed once a month until the flowers have set fruit. 

Dog wee and my lawn

I think it's asking a lot of a all lawn to cope with the wear and tear meted out by 12 busy paws the year round, even without the problem of the pee. If you're not "into lawns" I'd not attempt a lawn in that situation.

To Keep The Trees Or Not?

I totally agree with Busy Lizzie keep the row and and ditch the ash. We've just had one of the two large ashes in our garden felled. It cost ??500 to have done. They get very big quite quickly!

BL I think it's worth trying - this post on an old thread suggests that the stems can form roots

Hollie- Hock wrote (see)

Cosmos are lovely flowers- I've been growing the Purity ones for the first time this year.

Interesting what you said about the white roots. One of mine got really battered earlier this year and the stem was badly bent- the plant was still alive so I just left it resting on the ground.Just by chance I picked up the stem the other day and there are loads of roots coming out of the stem that was on the ground. So I guess it is possibly to take stem cuttings

Mine will probably get leggy too as they're on the dining room windowsill at the moment and will be going into the east-facing mini greenhouse later, so let us know how yours get on if you plant them deep.
