What is this plant?

My guess is the same as Nutcutlet's - from your description it's horsetail - but to upload a picture from your pc you click on the green tree icon on the toolbar above where you type your post.

Cut it off?

Yes, cut last year's flowers off and get some rose and shrub fertiliser and sprinkle it around the base - amount according to the pack directions.  Make sure it doesn't dry out in very dry weather and  when it flowers show us a picture and we'll try to give you a bit more info.

Frequently discussed on here and most of us agree wholeheartedly.  However this site belongs to the magazine, not the programme.

Advice on lawn problem

I'm sure it depends what you use - I've just found the instructions for the stuff I used today and it actually says leave it for 8 weeks after application before re-seeding bare patches  

You can zoom in using the + or - at the centre top, and the information about re-seeding is at the bottom of the label.

Always best to check

I think I have an explanation - the GW mag sold at Sainsbugs this May is a more expensive 'Bumper Pack' sold only at Sainsbugs and  this has free gloves and seeds - it is not available anywhere else - however it costs £5.99 which is more than the£4.25 I paid for the usual version at Waitrose.

You pays more - you gets more.

If the soil is hard and dry the worms may be deeper down.
