Lawn cutting

Posted: 10/02/2016 at 14:38

It doesn't matter about the date if the lawn needs cutting and the conditions are right.  Don't cut it if it's wet underfoot or if there's a frost forecast within the next few days.

Otherwise go ahead, but not too short, just take a little off to start with.

Clari - just check there's no children with latex allergy ...  it's getting very common.

Mystery sprouting bulbs - can they be moved?

Posted: 10/02/2016 at 13:08


I can't see what they are from here, possibly bluebells.  I wouldn't move them now - you run the risk of losing the blooms.

However, as soon as they've flowered dig them up and move them, planting them nice and deeply.  They'll be fine. 

Don't worry, the leaves will be there for a while after the flowers die off so you won't be able to miss them.

The Terms & Conditions and Code of Conduct have always been there - most people understand why and abide by them.

Verdun, I think it was Lyn who pointed out the other day that downloading Chrome will restore the toolbar. It's certainly helped several forum members.

Putting 'alum slugs gardening' into Google brings up nothing at all, so if there are gardeners out there using it successfully they're certainly not talking about it - that doesn't make me very hopeful that it works.

A bit more reading reveals that exposure to low levels of alum can cause serious lung damage, neurological disease and some cancers.

Don't think I'll be spreading it around my garden
