You need to put the title or something as near to it as possible, or subject of the thread e.g. 'pruning roses' into the search box at the top right, and then select the option 'Forum' and go through all the results to find the one you want.
In the second half of October I'll be sowing broad beans - Aquadulce Claudia - they will start to grow and overwinter to give you an early crop in May - usually way too early to succumb to aphid attack like later sown beans.
This variety has withstood 9 weeks of being under snow in the winter, and still given me a good crop.
Magnum, if you want a recommendation - I use Evergreen 4 in 1 lawn treatment in the spring. You can even buy it in Tesco and Asda nowadays. It kills off moss and weeds and feeds the grass. Use it carefully according to the instructions for amounts etc, and when to apply and when to water etc, and it will be fine.
The moss will turn black - that is to be expected - then you rake it out, either by hand with a spring tine rake or you can buy an electric lawn rake and scarifier.
I' have one of these http://www.screwfix.com/p/titan-ttb428gdo-32cm-1300w-lawn-scarifier-230v/48162?kpid=48162&cm_mmc=Google-_-Product%20Listing%20Ads-_-Sales%20Tracking-_-sales%20tracking%20url&gclid=CN6O47iukc8CFegW0wodZKMNMA
It's a shame - a fortnight ago it was on offer for £49.
Hope that helps

lush verdant sward here. Pygmy tribes are moving in as we speak.
( can we use the word " pygmy" these days? )
Interesting musings on that issue here http://scienceblogs.com/gregladen/2012/08/05/is-it-appropriate-to-use-the-term-pygmy-when-speaking-of-pygmies /
Love Greg Laden's blog
Haven't got any grass here to cut Hosta - just brown stubble
Mmmm sounds like it's a bug then ....... make sure you keep hydrated in this hot weather .... and yes, I know you know that, but I'm your mum .............
Yvie - it's too hot to set foot in a greenhouse - it's Silly Hot here
Wonky - put your feet up and drink plenty of water ((hugs)) was it the shellfish you had with Papa Womble?
Good morning all G'day Pat I agree with Chicky , use this opportunity for a second opinion. I learned a long time ago that stoicism is not the answer where our health is concerned! Go and see your doc's stand in.
Looks like we've got another hot day ahead of us.
Wonky you'll have to get your brother to teach you - after all, he gave his friend his first lessons and look what happened to him!
Sweet dreams everyone.
Therefore, to be possess'd with double pomp,To guard a title that was rich before,To gild refined gold, to paint the lily,To throw a perfume on the violet,To smooth the ice, or add another hueUnto the rainbow, or with taper-lightTo seek the beauteous eye of heaven to garnish,Is wasteful and ridiculous excess.
