punkdoc's right- most geraniums I've had showed red leaves at some point.

Hi Dove - so glad you enjoyed your outing! Maybe the lady had just had too much vino 

Laying turf over hardcore

Hi nomoreluke. I'd reckon if the ground's quite well consolidated you wouldn't need any membrane but you'd probably want a decent layer of soil to give the turf the best chance. I think if you're getting soil in bulk it won't be too expensive. As you're removing the old turf from the existing lawn could you maybe use that as a 'bottom layer' for the new soil?

Believe it or not I managed to kill Russian Vine once...if I knew how, I could have marketed it! Could have made a fortune

How about emailing the spammers and telling the to f... off

nut - that's what I was thinking but I'm a my name suggests...

Verd- was singing the MP song earlier! It's a pain in the ****  though when you open the forum page up and there's hardly a garden related thread on it.  New people might go elsewhere for help and that's the sad thing about it.

Tina-  did you go for a 'onesie' for doing the grass???

And my last comment on spam - surely anything containing the word 'kitchen' can be blocked? After all - none of us mention kitchens unless we're making cake!!!!

KEF- the problem is - will they do anything? I know what you mean about spammers doing it for the hell of it but I'd hate it if it puts new people off using the forum when they need some help.

Perhaps Sue's email will have some effect. Perhaps we should all email - how did you do it Sue? 

Were you needing a bit of rain KEF? Ground's getting dry here too. Unusual for this part of the world so I shouldn't complain!
