Can we have a close up of some of the affected grass/leaves please.

Has the lawn had any fertiliser or other treatment this summer?

White Hydrangea flowers have gone brown

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.

Good morning Clari  and the rest of you as you arrive 

Another beautiful morning of sunshine and birdsong here in Norfolk - but it does have a real hint of autumn - I've just wandered around the dewy garden in my jimjams and bare feet and left wet footprints on the terrace.

The two pattypan squash plants are making a bid for world domination - they are HUGE!!!  We have loads of squashes and OH is going to take some to the farm shop to sell, and I've plans to make some chutney ... we're eating squash every day - last night it was grated and turned into a salad with some chopped mint and parsley ... Did I mention that only one of the plants is producing at the moment ... the other is still at the 'male flowers only' stage ...........

 So you did ... I'd have known that if I'd read the question properly 

White fungus in soil ?

Posted: 17/08/2016 at 19:08

We've got lots of that in the soil under the lawn in this garden - we've been here several years now and it's not caused any problems - as has been said, most fungi are beneficial as they break down organic matter and make it available to plants.
