Sounds like a big NO then.

Agree with dove, wellies stuck in mud and your foot ends up sinking in, and if your socks were gathered at the toe end, these were never seen again.

I have only done relief miking, would like it as a full tiime job.

There are some beautiful bogs on Dartmoor, feet sink in lovely! They bubble, is it methane?

As long as the mesh has tiny holes its ok but if a leaf touches the mesh the little wotsits will lay through it.

Someone on here uses scaffolding mesh, cant remember off hand who it was,

Well you would be unaware, forgive you for that Mike cos I have only just opened it!

What do you have left to do in the garden this year?

Same here Perki, Penstemons still flowering and fuchsias, Aunty Rinums and a few others, oh and a rose covered in buds, dont think they will bloom though!

The tubs were still blooming till late and you dont feel you can just throw them away.

Its cropping it too short that causes the moss I have found. Couldnt get a late cut in, much to wet here, the fronts been done because its covered in snowdrops and if the grass is long they dont stand out. 

I would have loved to get another cut in as its always so wet in the Spring, we cut later.

Gosh Perki, better get on with those daffs, usually in by October, are they sprouting in the bag yet, I found some like that!

Red tulips and forget me nots will look lovely together.

I have just got to get a covering of compost on the big horseshoe shaped border and near enough done. Looks like full sun tomorrow so will take advantage of OH to shovel it into the wheel barrow for me.

Good thought WW, always just take off the top on the first couple of cuts.

Yes? Thought you wanted thread opened on books we can recommend?

Both these mentioned are brilliant books, most or probably all of the flowers I grow are bee and butterfly friendly.
