Autumn turf deteriorating fast....Help!!!!

Posted: 11/12/2014 at 19:10

I'd be wary of spiking turf that was laid so recently.  If it's not been growing well I doubt that it's got its roots well down yet, so you may find your pulling the turves up when spiking.  I wouldn't do it unless you've got standing water on it, and even then I'd be very wary.

Grass is pretty hard to kill - I'm sure that by next summer you'll be wondering what you were worrying about

I absolutely agree with Dave - as long as the ground isn't solid get them planted now.  I'd give them a mulch as well.

Shabby Chic Anyone?

Probably Prunus subhirtella Autumnalis or there's a pink version Prunus subhirtella Autumnalis 'rosea' - they flower in mild spells throughout the winter -  a gorgeous thing
