regarding the hydrangea - the plant should be fed once a week and not pruned until the spring. the feed could be any well-known plant food, but should contain phostragen for production of flowers.

Talkback: How to mow your lawn

When I have mowed my lawns, I look carefully for any signs of weeks and spray with a lawn weed killer spray. Despite my neighbours having lots of dandelions etc., my lawns are pretty clear of weeds - except for an appearance of yellow trefoil this week! Sprayed with lawn weed killer and fingers crossed!

Talkback: How to repair a lawn patch

Posted: 24/11/2011 at 15:28
very informative re creating and maintaining a good lawn. It seems to be an ongoing battle with my front lawn, which is in shade during the afternoon - however, I will try seed for shady lawns. Also, I have a couple of patches of bare earth left after killing moss, scarifying and sowing seed (lawn looking pretty good) - and I shall try the tip of placing polythene over the grass seed on the remaining patches (which have not germinated). Thanks for the tip.
