Rapeseed growing in my lawn - help!

Posted: 20/05/2015 at 08:47

It wont survive mowing. If the grass is long enough to cut, just mow it.

Weird one for me - help needed

Definitely stick it in a pot, give it a bit of tlc , and see what it turns into.

Punkdoc, 22.30 for a table.... ridiculous. Did they bounce you for Prince Harry? it a garden?

Well, I wish I had the space and money to do it. It just needs a lazy fox having a scratch in the sunshine to complete it. Dan Pearson said never again, too much stress, but then I guess he gets more commissions than he can do anyway.

I don't think our mrs mallard has babies. Although the drake still follows her around in a very attentive way, looking hopeful.

Make sure they get plenty of light during the day or they will get lanky.

Put them outside in the day, and up against a wall at night with a single layer of fleece or a double layer of newspaper. They should be ok to plant out after a week .

Mrs garden, was it the golden Lamium? or the silver leaved lamium (beacon silver).


Yes, Liri, Chatsworth has the artificial tree, but the water wasn't running last time I went.


Yes, I think we should have a mid week visit.  End of next week or is that too soon for everyone?

The top bit at Chatsworth with the woodland, stream, rhodos and azaleas, candelabra primulas, and usually some blue poppies won't have been touched. The stones came from the adjoining moorland, not the actual garden. I love it at this time of year, with the freshness before the hordes trample it down.

I think we will have to have a chatsworth visit. The bluebells will still be out and the rhodos and azaleas........but not this weekend, it will be heaving.

Blue sky here. Coffee then planting i think.
