Can somebody explain-why are some pictures posted sideways, upside down,.out of focus so tiny you cant see the detail-some seem to post from phone etc -but if people cant see them .................

Is it the site or the user or the device?-can they not rotate or enlarge the pics first and check the quality?

Can anything be done?

New Lawn a few yellow patches urgent help

Keep it on off

If you gardener did the job right he should have fertilized the soil-do not put any feed on new turf-not needed

It is best left alone to do its own thing-it is warm at the moment-for something to grow it need to bet wet and warm and if in any doubt do not mow-mowing at this stage is not crucial

I can only repeat-it will probably be fine -just do not look at for a week-imagine you are on holiday

Twice a week from Wednesday?

Sorry but this a living thing that doesnt not read the calendar

When you see some growth them mow it first with the blades set high-but not yet-you will know when

As for two weeks-come back and say what it is like then-but honestly stop stressing-it is pretty hard to kill grass

You do not want to be mowing a newly laid lawn after a week-just make sure it is kept moist but not sodden-the roots need to seek out moisture

By mowing it- you are weakening it

Keep calm and relax-grass is a tough old plant-am sure it will be fine

Just stay of it for at least the next week

Gooseberry Plants

Sounds like an attack of gooseberry saw-fly if the leaves disappeared that quickly

If the bulbs are firm they should be ok-if they are soft would not buy-remember they have been in that packaging for 6 months or therabouts now in a warm shop or warehouse

If you were running a business Andy-you take what advertising you can get-it is up to you to take measures to avoid

They are not diseased plants till they "catch" the disease- and they may not

So they have not sold your faulty goods

Whether you have redress if they do catch the disease is open to question-why not wait and see
