I have recently scarified and find that I get a lot of wormcasts whenever I do this .Is it ok to mow when these are present?

How to keep birds off newly seeded lawn

Thanks Redwing, If anyone has one of these I would love to see pics.

I was wondering, how effective (if at all) bird repellant grass seed was, anyone used it?   

How to keep birds off newly seeded lawn

Hi, I would be interested to know what tried and tested methods people use to keep birds off of their newly sown grass seed.

This Year was my first time at growing Cosmos from seed. I must say I am very impressed and look forward to having more next year. Unfortunately, unlike Verdun I didn't pinch them out and although they are huge ( up to 120cm) and beautiful, they have started to droop in the recent wet weather.   Oh well, another useful lesson learned

Could anyone clarify, do they come back next year? or do I just remove them when they are over?

Many thanks

Thanks Hazel/Verdun, may I ask what mulch you use Verdun? this is something I have never done but am realising I need to. 


When to scarify...

Posted: 04/09/2016 at 09:45

Hi all, may I ask how to oversow? I assume you mean scatter grass seed but what do I have to do to prepare the bed? Can I just throw seed down after scarifying or do I have to put a soil base down to allow it to 'take'? Thanks
