Definitely appreciated Bushman - many thanks

I want to put down turf but my lawn looks like the sahara

Posted: 05/05/2016 at 15:23

I would rake it and firm it down again by treading.  There are videos on the internet demonstrating if you've not done it before.

Same here Bushman - things are a bit tough in the Dove household at the moment for various reasons, and although I'm not posting as much as usual, I am enjoying everyone's company - it does me good.

I'm hanging on in here  ((hugs))

What is it?

I agree Nut, looks like Cuckoo flower to me too.  They grew all over a meadow to the rear of my former garden which had a river running through it.  Beautiful at this time of year and getting scarce.

Clari - I think LG the L has put his/her finger on it in Point 1 in the post above yours - for Latest Posts to function properly you have to go into it from the Home Page, not direct from another thread.  Hopefully this can be ironed out.

LG the L's post has very clearly explained the problems I'm experiencing. 

Also, what's the icon in the right hand corner of the toolbar

Can anyone help me treat my ailing standard holly tree!!

Hello a4ange

A photo would be good.  Also some more information -how big is the holly, what size pot is it in and what sort of compost/growing medium is in the pot.  When was it last repotted and what is the feeding and watering regime?

I agree - this is early days yet - I struggled yesterday on my iPhone, but the new format is better on the laptop. 

I wish that we had a page of 'Latest Posts' we could glance down to pick out an interesting subject ... maybe it will appear

Plant ID - is it a tree?

Posted: 05/05/2016 at 06:57

Unless you have several acres and want a large wildlife thicket-type area I'd chop it up and put it on the compost heap.  It will grow huge and be nothing but a nuisance.

And I love trees
