Still no rain here yet but I've put a load of jeans and heavy shirts in the wash so expect torrential rain shortly
Just been out in my dressing gown and picked a big bunch of sweet peas
We think that something very exciting along those lines is happening and we're bursting with curiosity ......................
Clari - you're being very enigmatic ........
It is misleading isn't it, when you buy a packet of seeds thinking that they're native wild flowers but really they're wild flowers from more or less anywhere in the world.
Good morning all
Still no rain here - we were promised heavy showers last night but nothing so far. It's overcast here but they don't look like rain clouds.
KEF's making bacon butties for everyone
Bill - ignore what I said - I was talking about leatherjackets Duh! I've had too much sun!!!
But you still won't spread chafer grubs by mowing their lawn.
Think I'd better go to bed ........................
That sounds exciting Hostafan I love the big hostas
Chafer grubs are the larvae of the Crane fly (Daddy Long Legs) - they are the result of the adults laying eggs in the soil so can't be spread by a lawnmower.
The best way of getting rid of them is to use Nematodes http://www.gardening-naturally.com/acatalog/Chafer_Nematodes.html
You can tell your customer all about them
Given that it has existed since the surface of the planet was a tropical swamp, I should think it'll probably be very happy there
