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.
