New lawn going brown

Posted: 08/12/2016 at 21:59

A bit of Aeration and scarification should do the job, for next year.

If it drains well and you have no moss then I see no reason why you should not have a perfect lawn next year. Not keen on weed killer but Verdone should get your lawn back, once the growing season starts. 

Epsom salts will help with the rest.

Hayfever and gardening as a career

We sell our surplus honey from the end of our drive, and quite a few people buy it because they say it helps them with asthma / hayfever.

We filter the honey to take out the odd bee wing etc ... but a lot of pollen ends up still in the honey.

Shop honey from the big suppliers is likely to be filtered to within an inch of its life .... and also heat treated  ... so not much of the "good stuff" makes it into the jars.

The theory is that by eating local honey people are taking taking tiny amounts of pollen from the area they live in. 

Unfortunately this is not going to help you Rubyleaf as bees do not forage on grasses, so no grass pollen will be in honey.

Good luck in your career.

 Can I ask for your spilt natural honey please. You know the stuff that is dropped between the hive and the collection jar and is not saleable?  The stuff that is not pasteurized and not for Sale!!!

PS. Do you also spill whole milk as well.

 Glyphosate. Works in 10 days, no toxic residue!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! and then dig over and plant up in late spring. Nothing else will really work in an area as bad as this. Good luck. Ian. PS: You'll probably have to repeat the process next year. 

I presume that is why they are banning it,  All over the world. and we are last???????????????

Enjoy your food
