Petrol lawn mower

My internet research sugests I have crab grass !

The research was conducted in true fashion - after I bought a new mower thinking it was the cylinder mower not picking up the long flat pale grass that is taking over, so bought a rotary thinking it might 'suck it up' to the blade. Still waiting for it to grow a bit before the great trail commences.

Bought a Honda.  I heard that the reaason so many Honda cars on the road due to folk beng impressed with their mowers... bah

euphorbia looks like mildew

Hi, do you mean the sap? Have you a damaged stem? They bleed copious amounts of   nasty white sap, it can be quite harmful. Dont get it on your hands. Mildew is white but in pustile form that you could scrap off with your finger nail,normally on the leaves. Bit too early for mildew

My new trees are all romping away. But the plums, victoria and czar don't have any blossom.  

Went to the  local garden centre which has a huge selection of fruit trees, all lined up showing their blossom - apart from the plums! No buds either.

Anyone else budless?

Left mine in the terra firma for the second year running, no sign yet, as expected though...

Being a pessimist, i'm always pleased with the outcome 

Lawn not so good

Posted: 06/05/2013 at 16:42

I sowed my own lawn 5 years ago with a mixture which didn't contain rye grass. It's grown okay but the problem is I am getting a lot of coarse grass becoming established and it, as well as the finer grass, is growing prostrate. Always believed the best mowers are cylinders and have stuck with them. But now I'm getting fed up with all the missed long prostrate grass that when raked after the mower looks a real mess.  My neighbours all have rotary machines and I have to admit they appear to make a better job.  Do they suck up the grass and offer the long grass to the blade erect? 

I nurture my grass with more love than it deserves, certainly with more than my neighbours bother with theirs yet theirs is far superior, envy.... I'm a sinner,I confess!

So my learned friends, how do I make it erect? Or am I destined to become ever prostate
