@nola... well that might be it.. as they told me that they have had many complaints from their customers.. i really do think it is their fault that my lawn went as it has.. and possibly yours too... well worth a chat with them.. let me know how it goes.

@christopher2.. many thanks for that..

good going matt.. you can let loose with your anger on it with an axe.. it is great for getting the stress outdone.. it will look great when it gets growing up over the fence...

i would plant.. penstemons... sedum... lilly...  weigelia (for some form) cransebill geraniums.. grannys bonnets... primulas (shaded by large plants) i could go on but yur bed is not large enough.. i like a mix of all those and flowers throughout year then.. and of course some bulbs..

What's the weather like in your area?

it has been scorching today.. i got sun burnt in the garden again..  have got all 2 loads of washing dry and far too hot in greenhouse to pot up things that need it right now..

waiting for the rain.. were supposed to have had some otehr afternoon.. but nothing.. hopefully tomorrow so it can fill my water butts up again as 2 are now empty..  the lawn also needs some of it to get its green look back.. yesterday at Osbourne House.. and it was very hot there.. but did apply sun cream so didnt get burnt..
