Patchy Grass

Ooh Verd - rotating rabbits.....

Daughter had a guinea pig when she was young, and we just moved it's run round the grass to give it a chance to recover.

Normally a feed would rejuvenate the grass along with a bit of rain, but I don't know how they affect rabbits. Seaweed might be the best option of those. As Verdun suggests, a  run away from the grass is the best option though, only allowing them on it occasionally.

It does look a bit sad  

I think hard weather can make them a bit like that too.

You can only try a similar approach to Abby's - fingers crossed it will come away again

Your name for the forum is the most appropriate BL - you're always busy !

Hope your daughter  and SIL enjoy their trip to Venice 

I've still a couple of the hills there to do T'bird, but I'll save those for a better day. 

Enjoy your snooze but don't forget to change your clocks...

I should have said that the one I knew was on a living tree rather than a dead one...but I'm still not keen!

Please try Hosta 

I should have kept schtum. Hailstones are currently battering the windows  

Forecast's not great T'bird - been spoilt recently with some lovely alpine days. Waterproofs and extra layers will be needed tomorrow. There will be an extra layer of snow on the tops too. Thinking of heading up to one I've done a few times at the Rest and be Thankful just beyond Arrochar. It's a great little walk.

I've seen a montana used this way DYL, but you need to improve the soil well, plant it a reasonable distance from the tree, and water well till established to give it a reasonable chance. Montanas don't need pruning so it's an easier choice than the ones which do. You can just tidy bits now and again to suit. 

It's not something I care for because you still have the dead tree, but it would have a framework of branches covering it once it gets going
