Can anyone please help with naming this plant?

And of course the petals of Erysimum and Hesperis are very similar, as are those of all their relatives in the Brassica family

Aphid damage? 

lawn fungus

There will still be finer tree roots under the lawn.  Just wait until the grass is dry and use a stiff broom, knock them down and sweep them off (add to compost heap).  


They really are doing no harm - in fact they're a sign of the rich ecological diversity in your garden. A good thing. 


They'll disappear anyway when the weather dries out.

Chicky - I know absolutely how you feel. 


Hosta if you want to post some photos on here you could email them to me then I can post them easily from my phone. I post all my pics from my phone now rather than faff around resizing them.

ive just sown beet root and Swiss chard. Pak choi does well sown now too. Early varieties of carrots are another possibility.

I use 4 in 1 on our front lawn. My OH is prone to asthma. He regularly cuts the lawn and has never had a problem.


However some people have different triggers - a sensitivity to mowed grass is not uncommon.  It's best to seek advice from their GP.

Good morning all 


Steady soft rain all night here and a warm night - just what's needed for the seeds I sowed yesterday. 


Meeting with brother and solicitor today re probate, so at least I'm not missing a gardening day.
