When it's nearly ripe tie a paper bag over its head to catch them.

problem grass verge

Very little grass is just grass. Most have a selection of wildflowers already there unless lawn weed killer has been used. I'd stop mowing for a few weeks and see what you've got. If you dig up and re-seed you'll allow loads of plants you haven't chosen  to get a hold. 

When you see what you've got you can add more. A good packet of yellow rattles spread around after the last mowing will reduce the grass and give the chosen plants more space. Dog daisies, musk mallow  and lesser knapweed are among the easiest to get established in grass.

An annual wildflower mix out there would be a lot more work than grass

pruning a winter flowering vibernum

Is this the pink deciduous or the white evergreen?

Whatever I think they're both tough enough to stand whatever you do to them. I think the deciduous ones are better for having some whole stems removed to the ground rather all cut back a bit

how to get rid of wasp nest?

Posted: 05/07/2014 at 09:16

If you tip it out they'll disperse. Or you can get wasp nest killer from GC etc. Use it at night when they're asleep
