New House, Old Lawn

Posted: 22/12/2011 at 14:34

You don't say how large your garden is, but if not too large I think I would probably dig it over, removing as many weeds as you can, then re-turf or sow grass seed.  If you want flower beds this would be the best time to work out where they could go - before you regrow the lawn that is.   A bit of work, I know, but worth it in the long run.

Am all in favour of a bee-kind garden, as I am a beekeeper.  Where would we be without bees?  

Talkback: Carrot fly

I grow all my carrots in willow planters which are a height of about 18 inches.  I have never had trouble with carrot fly as I think they fly lower to the ground than this.   

Talkback: Cabbage white caterpillars

My cauliflowers were nearly decimated by them.  I successfully netted them against the pigeons but was tearing my hair out with the cabbage white.  Think I will just not grow brassicas next year.
