I  was assuming you were doing ok so didn't want to mention it in case it jinxed you! I'm sleeping much better - will I send you some 'vibes? 

Weed n Feed

Posted: 09/07/2016 at 08:49

Granma - what it really comes down to is - how do you want your grass to look. If you want centre court at Wimbledon you need a LOT of time to put into it. If you just want a reasonable green space, you don't.

Regular cutting and a bit of weed and feed in spring will give you a nice 'lawn' to enjoy through summer

Wouldn't water with some washing up liquid do the job well enough? Surely it would be done every day if you have a dog too.

Great work Sonny. Love your steps. Satisfying to see the changes isn't it?  

If you're looking for suitable plants for north facing areas, just start a thread and put plenty of info re what you like and what you're looking for and you'll get loads of advice and suggestions. Photos are always useful for that too.

I'm pleased to see Raonich in the final T'bird. Roger's not match fit etc but the big lad took his chances well. I think he's a great future prospect for big things.

I'm quite enjoying being in bed - now that I have one!  

Someone stealing my details from the forum

I didn't send you  a PM Mike, and I rarely look at my messages unless I'm expecting oneor need to send one.

And Dove's right. Scammers. Nobody has to give the forum those kinds of details - credit card info etc.

Garden Pictures 2016

Lovely pix Julie - you've put a lot of work into your garden. Really paying off  

Wet here too flumpy. It's been so cold here that the grass hasn't grown too much since last weekend though. Every cloud, as they say...literally!  

Good to see your photos here Jacqueline. It's a great thread for seeing loads of different ideas and styles isn't it?

Morning all/afties Pat. Yes - what you need is a teenager  

Wet here too. I knew I should have made the effort to cut the grass last night... 

I blame Andy and Roger.. I had to lie down in a  darkened room after those matches. Worn out with the tension! 

Superb play though. I think I'll try and get a walk tomorrow even though the forecast's rubbish...I'll never cope with the final 

My Dad lived quite near Wimbers when he was young. He said no one made a big fuss about the tournament then - different times!

Mine flowered on and off all  last year. They do that here quite often as we don't have such warm weather. Just  enjoy them LG! 

Extremely sickly looking bamboo

Hi Tim - a couple of questions. How big is the container it's in? Have you had a look at the root system?

If it's been in the pot for over a year, and the pot isn't sizeable, then there's a good chance that the pot is full of roots and not much else, which means there isn't much to sustain it. Watering and feeding won't really help if that's the case. Any plant in a container for a long time needs a reasonable amount of soil to thrive. 

Ironically, although many bamboos have a reputation for being invasive in the ground, they often don't do well in pots long term.
