Brown circles in grass

Many thanks for the tip - will try to be more vigilant!

Thanks everyone for your helpful answers.  I looked at them this morning and the brown patches are actually shrinking, so I think it must be caused by animals.  We did see a fox about a year ago, but nothing since.  Unfortunately you cannot watch the garden 24/7 to find out what is out there!

Again, many thanks - I knew I would get some sensible replies from you guys.

There are three cats nearby but none of them use the grass as a loo!

Five circles of brown grass, surrounded by darker course green grass, have appeared in my lawn .  They only emerged a couple of weeks ago.  The garden did flood twice between end of May and mid June - could this have anything to do with it?

No idea what it is or the cause - any suggestions and remedies greatly appreciated

Hope photo is OK.

Sweet Peas In Hanging Basket

Posted: 29/04/2014 at 18:23

All of my sweet pea seeds germinated, so I have more plants than I have room for.  

Would they survive in a hanging basket?  I can't decide so I thought there must be an expert out there who could help.

I found ant killer worked wonders if sprinkled around them.

Glut of apples

I too usually have a glut of apples, and apart from giving some away, I make apple muffins,  They can be flavoured with many other ingredients.  Apple sorbet is very nice too, and can be made without a machine.

 

Brambles & mint

Thanks for the suggestions. If it ever stops raining long enough I will certainly try the selective weed killer, and in the meantime enjoy the lovely smell!

Help!

We had some new turf laid last October, in place of old fruit bushes.  Unfortunately we now have brambles and mint growing through.  I have tried stump and bramble killer on the main plants, but how do I get rid of the bits growing through the lawn without killing the grass?

Any help would be appreciated.
