Yellow grass after scrarifying

Posted: 14/11/2016 at 20:54

Scarification /Aeration and Epsom salts and iron oxide (will kill the moss and give you a excellent lawn next year.  )


Do not try anything unless there is some growing season left. At this date you must think!!!!!!!!!


TLC for Aerated Lawns After you aerate, leave soil plugs in place to decompose. ...You can fertilize and seed lawns immediately following aerating. ...Core aeration brings up weed seeds from lower soil levels. ...Water your lawn a few extra times following aeration, especially during hot or dry spells.

Can redwoods survive without winter?

Hi, 


I have several giant sequoias, coast redwoods, and douglas firs growing indoors. It is quite warm in the room, probably around +23-24 Celsius, which means that they won't get a proper winter. The temperature outside is about +3-8, but in a week or so it is likely to drop slightly below freezing.


The problem is that all the plants germinated quite late, in mid July, and are now growing vigorously. I am wondering what would happen if I now take them outside given that they haven't developed woody stems. The other option I have is to leave them indoors, in which case they wouldn't get any winter. 


thanks in advance

Wow! The last giant sequoias I saw was doing well and needed no help from us (thanks for trying though)

 Where have you been Edd?


 It's been a quiet summer here. We seem to have lost a lot of regulars.


See original post

 I've been inside for 6 month fidgetbones!


This bloody new house is costing me a fortune. Wish I bought a new one. 


Having to do new training for BDMLR but i'm doing coast guard at the mo with RNLI training as this is the first step. My fell rescue experience is a great help and a bit of a foot in the door but there is a hell of a lot of new training and it will take forever. (some of it is even underwater!!!


Bought new house but still have the old one.


Looking at the time scale,  I will be dead before I start. It has got me to some interesting places though.

I went into a pet shop last week. They had a live section with guinea pigs and rabbits in. I thought it was so sad. My mice  and voles run around outside. They may not live very long but they are free range. At least British pet shops no longer have dogs and cats in the window. Last time we were in Cairns,in Australia,  in the mall was a pet shop with puppies in the window in a small glass box. I got quite upset. It was horrible.

 I blame the locals for that.

would you move house for a bigger garden?

That is OK fidgetbones.


I'm in a corner with a large semi.


So you discovered that marriage and husbands did not work for you. 6 day weeks and a mortgage did not work ether ???


I read your profile many years ago fidgetbones you do not have to apologise to me.


We all wished that one day we would find our own destiny (the one we thought about when young ) but it was too hard to follow then as we had no experience, 


If you could chose the life that you wanted now, would you change things. Would you,  go back and start it all over again.


Of course you would. You would change all the mistakes that you made and then you would have learned nothing.


It's hard because We can't chose your own destiny and we can't see into the future. 


You can try and shape it but everything is not clear and true and we will never know what will happen.


Wow fidgetbones.


That got a bit deep. Sorry.


PS. Try scuba diving. That's deep.


You do start in your local swimming pool but things get a bit better when you hit Belize.

Enjoy please.


If I could make a wish


I think Id pass
Cant think of anything I need
No cigarettes, no sleep, no light, no sound
Nothing to eat, no books to read

Making love with you
Has left me peaceful, warm, and tired
What more could I ask
Theres nothing left to be desired
Peace came upon me and it leaves me weak
So sleep, silent angel, go to sleep

Sometimes, all I need is the air that I breathe
And to love you
All I need is the air that I breathe
Yes to love you
All I need is the air that I breathe

Peace came upon me and it leaves me weak
So sleep, silent angel, go to sleep

Sometimes, all I need is the air that I breathe
And to love you
All I need is the air that I breathe
Yes to love you
All I need is the air that I breathe

Sometimes, all I need is the air that I breathe
And to love you
All I need is the air that I breathe
Yes to love you
All I need is the air that I breathe
And to love you
All I need is the air that I breathe
Yes to love you.


I have memories of Sigue Sigue Sputnik. The good times.

The more bites they get the more they get immune. (so be quick)


Just think insurance


My OH has, had two snake bites this week and that is just in the pet shop, trying to get a pet mouse out of the cage so my little one can have her first pet.


How I wish we could have cheep insurance and venomous pets for sale in the shops
