I have a problem with my Grass dying

They are just seed heads from a weed. Give it a good rake to get rid of the dry grass and thatch then treat with a Autumn feed. You may need to rough up the surface and plant some Autumn seed on the dead patches.

So it all depends on your last frost, if you have late frost in May as we do, your Spring sown seeds will be the same size except you've had the hassle of storing them over winter, with vigilant dead heading and feeding they will  still go all through summer.

Definely is a weevil!

Bit late for nematodes you could use provado, squash any you see, they can't fly so you have time to get them, treat all your tubs and houseplants.

I have had three clumps of bamboo in for nearly four years, it hasn't spread, I am waiting for it to grow some canes for me?

it isn't very tall either, only just six ft now.


Using horse manure

I just chuck everything I have got into the compost bins, if some horse muck is available, it goes in there as well. Sometimes I buy a bag of well rotted farmyard manure to add.

In December the whole lot gets put on the beds.

Trees won't need feeding though, but spread what you have got around the perennials, the worms will take it down.
