Thanks for your advice Paula. I will follow your instructions in a few weeks time. I always seem to have a problem with 'seed' just sitting on the top that doesn't 'bed in' and then when I water it floats about !

Hi Paula, Yes unfortunately I do have moss and speedwell in my lawn, so should I start to put a moss/weedkiller down now and then rake in a week or so, or should I defer for a couple of weeks? Also, is power raking the same thing as scaryfing? Thanks

Now that we are in September, (I know, where does the time go? )  I would like to know the best way to prepare for a healthy lawn for the spring. For example scarifying, aerating, overseeding etc. Could anyone advise on best methods/time to do this? thankyou.

Just identified it as Oxalis Corniculata, now wondering if anyone has had any success removing it.

I am having a nightmare controlling what I consider to be a weed but I believe could be a member of the oxalis family. It has copper coloured four leaf clover shaped leaves with small yellow flowers. It spreads like mad, is in my borders, my pots and is trying to spread into my lawn. Any ideas how to get rid please?

Thanks to everyone for replying, my Clematis are in 36cm pots. I have been giving them a good 'drink' but maybe I have not been so good at feeding. I have been using miracle grow ( the blue granules that you dilute in water) the top foliage on two of them looks o.k but it is definately at the bottom where they look awful.
