Clari - a tip - sometimes tipping them the wrong way up stops the screaming - at least for a little while 

Hogweed

Posted: 18/08/2016 at 10:50

Ordinary hogweed is not harmful - as children we picked arms full of it to feed the pet rabbits.


Giant Hogweed is the nasty one, and it is Giant, and hardly missable 


This will help you to identify it http://www.wildfooduk.com/articles/giant-hogweed-and-common-hogweed/


Spurge is the other plant which can cause problems, if the sap gets onto your skin.

New build lawn, white patches, any ideas?

It's not something I've come across, but this sounds as if it may be the cause

It's interesting that it says it can be spread by garden machinery - one of the hazards of using a visiting lawn care company I suppose

White Hydrangea flowers have gone brown

Posted: 18/08/2016 at 07:05

Autumn is here - flowers don't last for ever - they'll fade and turn brown and papery.  


Leave the flower heads on over winter to  protect the buds below them from the winter weather, then cut the dead flower heads off in May and the new growth will start to appear.
