Can I plant a lawn on heavy clay

Posted: 27/02/2013 at 15:01

I have heavy clay soil lawn with a under ground spring running through it and on  a hill,nothing is impossible and yes it gets water logged but I try to keep off until spring and of course if there is no deluge of rain it dries out.

It is lovely to see someone taking a pride in the front of their home and giving a lovely display.Today as I walk my area,most front gardens are taking up for brick drive ways and piles of grit and not a flower in sight.(90% )and only a few gardens with flowers.

Where to site a gooseberry bush

Posted: 25/02/2013 at 15:39

I have gooseberries in the shade and they are fine,they like air to circulate through the branches to stop sawfly and I dig up all the tuff grass so as not to encourage these little gritters and also its best to plant them in plenty of space so they are not competing for ground  because they can get bushy.
