Dog wee stains on grass

Just tip a bucketful of water over each brown patch.  It'll dilute the effect of the urine.  If you still have her with you and she's still doing it, the sooner the water is tipped over the urine patch the better - but not actually as it's being created, unless she's with you permanently and you're determinted to re-train her!

My Under Gardener has been particularly wonderful today - not only has he done shopping and peeled potatoes and parsnips and made me countless cups of coffee - he mowed the front and back lawns ..... WITHOUT BEING ASKED!!!

What's the star in your garden right now

Artjak - it's the first time I've grown them - if I remember correctly I sowed into a half-tray and germinated them under a clear plastic lid on the south-east facing windowsill in the dining room - in late April I think - then pricked out into modules and put them in the mini-greenhouse - then they went into fibre pots and were hardened off outside before planting into the big pot - they seemed quite straightforward but it has been a lovely summer for plants that like it warm and sunny

The star in my garden at the moment is my wigwam of Black Eyed Susan, grown from seed, on our front porch - she keeps getting compliments from the postmen and people calling with collecting tins etc
