Woody I have my lawn dressing 3 bags of stuff ready and waiting to do again me new to all this lawn stuff only done a bit last year other than cutting the grass.

One area of the garden had a shelter on - moss really bad there, grass was brown when took shelter down so did not scarify that bit of lawn let it get nice and watered by rain green now just lots of moss. Will need to buy lots of lawn seed as lots of bare ground as well

Hillier's still have some bags

Think I will try this product's-Lawn-Magic-5-Litre-Grass-Feed.product.502957.html?sc=502957-DRIL&cm_sp=VIEWPOSITION-_-9-_-502957

Hello all,  Woody it sounds like you had a good day yesterday.

I got the pruners out today and cut back the autumn flowering raspberries and some roses.

As it got cold later I went indoors to paint a raised bed a nice maple leaf colour.

Hello forkers

I have been out playing in the garden making a brick edging and then playing with the pond it fitted into the pond hole I dug before - only a few bits to alter dad helped me, carrying lots of water butt water down the garden to fill the pond that's the weight lifting done.

Sun was out today so warm ish out there, I even saw a large bee flying around spring here

Does anyone want any baby cyclamen hederifolium alba?  I've got hundreds of babies coming up all over the place.  


Can I have some Dove please

Dove I did not label lots of my bulbs in pots so will be a surprise when they show up like yours

I dug up Poppy pattys plum, because it was sprouting and I remembered I dont like the muddy coloured flowers even if everyone else raves about it.  It fell apart and I potted the bits. 10 plants of pattys plum anyone?



Can I have some fidgebones I like please

That's if you still have them both
