Lawn Help

Posted: 16/09/2016 at 07:32

Don't use 4 in 1 at this time of year - you'll be setting up a load of new problems for yourself.  It's for spring application.

Leave your lawn alone now, apart from mowing as needed and as Verdun says, on a Med height cut.  

If we have a mild winter and it keeps growing, only mow on dry days, never when frost is forecast. 

The real work will start in the spring.

Obelixx - I'm going to add a little bit of liquid pectin to be on the safe side 

Supper here tonight, oven chips, french beans, really lovely ham and fried eggs ... I've had a hankering for ham egg and chips for ages ... just had to give in and today, when the kitchen was being used for other things, seems a good day for that sort of supper 

Ma used to feed Wonky and her brother with chocolate buttons 'for their health' - she said that chocolate has iron and 'it'll stop them being anaemic'

If you mow regularly it can't flower.  

Then use Evergreen 4 in 1 in the spring - it should kill the clover
