Good morning Stacey  -

Winter work on moss?

Posted: 01/02/2014 at 07:28

In the past I've used the Evergreen complete and it's been very effective when used according to the directions.


I don't use any 'chemicals' on the lawns in this garden as we have a lot of wildlife, frogs etc and wildflowers in the lawn which we are very happy with - it takes a bit of raking and aerating to keep the moss under control - but it's cheaper than going to the gym

Good morning Clari - I'm off to have lunch later with my daughter in law to start proper planning for my trip to Russia - don't you work too hard 

Winter work on moss?

I'd keep off the lawn while it's as wet as it is at the moment - doing anything to it while we've got this amount of sogginess will do more harm than good

Good morning all   Happy February - let's hope it doesn't live up to it's old name of Fill-dyke - the ditches are already brimming over 

Well you lot were chatty last evening!  I nodded off on the sofa - which meant that I was up before the lark this morning so was out for my stomp at 6am - even woke a wren up - he chattered at me angrily as I walked past his tree.

Summer or Autumn Raspberries

Posted: 31/01/2014 at 20:02

Cut back any canes that have borne fruit - they'll have side shoots and the remains of the fruit clusters.  If they're autumn fruiting you'll have no canes left.  If you have unfruited canes left then you have summer fruiting raspberries.

Whichever they are - enjoy

Supper over and I've done the washing up 'cos OH has done a 10 hour day today - usually he always washes up.  

Sounds as if it's getting wetter and wetter outside

Stacey - criminals should work 9-5 and retire at 60 - we have decreed it!

Hi folks and thanks for the pics of sunshine 

The car was fine - they said the tyres all have quite a bit of mileage left in them, and they replaced the headlight bulb and fixed the flickering brakelight so I'm all safe and legal 

As for the tooth - when I get a minute I'll phone the dentist and decide what's to be done - I've got a checkup booked for later this month so I might just get them to make that a longer appointment.
