How to keep birds off newly seeded lawn

Posted: 08/10/2016 at 09:00

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?

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


Thanks

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 

Problem with Phlox

I have had a terrible problem with white powdery mildew on my Phlox this year, any idea how to avoid it for next year please? Also, can it spread to nearby plants? as a neighbouring Rose seems to look like it may have it also. 

Moving a Potentilla

Sorry, I forgot to mention it was only planted last year, so not sure if that makes it easier move?

Moving a Potentilla

My Potentilla is currently flowering and looking lovely but I have noticed it is a being a bit overwhelmed by a nearby Nandina. I am guessing now is not a good time to move it, when if at all, should I attempt to find it a bigger spot? Thanks
