Talkback: Leatherjackets in lawns

Posted: 02/10/2014 at 14:05

When you see all the crane flies bouncy around the lawn, that's the time to deal with it. go and squash them before they lay the eggs.

I don't do this, it's all part of life and something will eat the larvae. The more indiscriminate poisoning that goes on the more the balance is upset and one pest gains superiority

These are advertised as annuals. They may be half hardy or tender perennials rather than annuals, some companies don't distinguish between the two (or 3).

They won't take a winter outside whichever they are.

How big are he pots and how much water do they get?

These  grow in water,  they need plenty to drink

Plant snowdrops asap, they don't like drying out and are best bought 'in the green'.

I've failed to grasp the problem with putting them in the garden, they won't get contaminated by the spanish ones, The offspring will probably be crosses. If you don't let them seed this will not happen.

Being in pots will not stop them hybridising.

Lavender cuttings

I would have nurtured them until spring. Not heat, I haven't got a heated GH but cold and wet is more of a killer than cold

Received 48 perennial plugs, but what do I do next?

I'd get  second opinion though Jess. I'm a bit slapdash with the gardening

Those that need hacking back before the season starts are hacked back by me at any time that's convenient during the winter
