Yes Pentillie, cake was a pre-dinner snack - naughty me, but needed it to help with the back pain. Very tasty. Dinner yet to come.
Mrs Garden, bulb planter was also tried in the grass, but land very solid and it only went in about two inches. Not sure if it is the grass being really compacted or if you need to dig area before planting bulbs.
Will keep using the bulb planter even if I resort to using it only in the veg patch to help make holes for planting. Will try harder next year once ground has been dug a bit more and grass area re-sown and improved
Question about the lawn - do I remove the weeds from the lawn before scarifying again as I have given it an autumn feed, or do I wait until after the scarifying?
