I would invest in a good spreader those cheap ones aren't very good as they do tend to drop too much feed in some places. I find the Scott's spreaders very good. About ??40

Thanks all, it gets lots of light especially around the base. I'll give it a good feed and see how it goes.

When you have prepared the site, dug it over, you could let the site fallow for a few weeks to allow any weed seeds to germinate and then hoe them off before you lay the new turf.

Hi I have a climbing rose where all the shoots and leaf growth and flowers are all along the top section. If I cut back hard will it stimulate growth lower down the plant? I don't know what variety the rose is.

Can vouch for tomato sauce, we give our dog sardine in Tom sauce. Seems to work. Or there are something called dog rocks, which are quite pricey. Best just keep the dog off the lawn and train the dog where to urinate.
