philippa - I'm terribly militant. In fact, I might get so worked up that I will possibly tut loudly at the news...

is this grass struggling?

I've forgotten it's name John, but it's common in compacted poor soil - especially if it's shady. Perfect conditions for it.

Aerating and feeding the grass, and generally giving it some good care and attention will help

Small plants can take a few years to reach maturity and be the big blousy full grown specimens we like B3  

Was it a small specimen you planted?

Hi Loopy - when you say 'tree' do you mean the trunk of it is dominating the area, with a canopy of foliage above?  Also, what kind of tree is it? 

It's a small area, but there will be something suitable. Is it wet shade or dry? That will also determine what you can grow. The holly will get big if it's happy there, so it won't leave much room unfortunately.

How lucky to have seen her in the flesh Hosta. She was delightful. Hard when the people you've 'grown up with' are going, and worse when it's way too soon. 

Just been out to remove the planks that have been chucked down on top of my primulas along the back fence.....

Wishing I hadn't bothered with this ruddy extension now.
