Grass seed

I would have thought so , however , if that is the case I would put a bit more down in the spring , if it is a very dry spring might want a drop of water 

best of luck

Woo2 , green manure 

I used it last year for the first time on my allotment ,Thompson & Morgan green manure mixture , again used it  this year on a couple vacant beds , it's a seed mixture that you can leave it to grow over winter to keep the weeds down , it can then be dug in 

deffinately recommended it

Yes , back to Christmas , I have just thought what I could have for Christmas 

 A battery strimmer

It could help in cutting the grass around the edge of my allottment and the beck bank on side of garden 

my good lady is going to make some mince pies this week because she is going to an early Christmas Do on Thursday

I like Stolen , got mini ones last year from Lidl , they where great with a cup of coffee or glass of sherry , a much under rated drink in my opinion
