Cost effective moss killer

Posted: 25/03/2016 at 07:49

I use B&Q's own brand weed and feed which seems just as effective as any of the branded products, and works well on the plentiful moss I have in the front garden. I expect they do a mosskiller on it's own Esspee, although it's not something I use in isolation  

Worms/Leeches climbing up house wall...?

They happily climb our walls here - which are rendered and covered in crushed shell.

Which,of course, is one of the recommended deterrents to put round plants!

We seem to have slightly drifted off topic - sorry Laura 

Perhaps it's given you a laugh though!

Layering works well  with honeysuckles hollie - just like strawberries 

That reminds me - did you take any strawberries with you to your new house? I can send you more if you want any.

I have 'the Duchess' too philippa - had to put her back in a pot as she got too blousy in the border she was in. She'll get a good spot somewhere along the back of the house when the extension's done. A few new shoots poking through now. 

I wonder who started the peony 'don't move' hooha....perhaps the same person who first spotted Nessie...

What was it someone once said about Health and Safety being the three most dangerous words in the English language... 

I moved a four foot pencil conifer in July many years ago...no problem.

Mind you - with the amount of rain we can get in that month - I didn't even have to do much watering in!

I have some of that rainbow stuff too Berghill!  

I don't really use it much but it's handy for pots of bits and pieces that I'm likely to forget about for months....

Well done 'niece of KEF' - really great achievement   

Have you still got your tutu KEF?....

Glad hubby is home safe T'bird. 

Hope you're getting paid promptly this month Clari. 

Going to get a cuppa and prepare myself for Line of Duty - fantastic. If you haven't watched it  - you're really missing a treat.
