We have one, OH has used it all day, we have a mountain of moss, it's the same every spring. later, in early April we will use a weed,feed and moss killer.  worth buying for that price, ours was 99.00 so go for it.

I haven't had them outside either, but I use the same as Dove, you have to follow up though, one dose doesn't do it.

I have the Vanilla Fraise, I love it. It's only a baby at the moment, cheapy from Parkers. He will grow.

Hydrangea Soil PH?

Not sure they will stay white, I dig my whites out after a couple of years,they first turn to pale grey then a dirty pale grey/ blue, then they're out.

i have just one left now that had stayed white, but my soil is very acid,  

Identify please

Too big for  Echinops, definitely Cardoon. I have Hosta's seeds on the go, hope they germinate.
