grass seed

Posted: 20/09/2014 at 13:26

I have been resuscitating a very neglected lawn for a couple of years. It is ready for over seeding and will probably need doing in spring as well.

My question is, if I got a BIG bag of grass seed and used some now, would the rest keep until I need it in the spring? 

Many thanks

There was a thread about that. Senior moments.    Sorry I couldn't resist

I don't think I've got a favorite bit Bekkie. I just love sitting outside the front door with a cup of tea thinking "We've done all this"

I'm a big-head I know

artjak.....If you mean the small fence round the border. It is made from small pointed pales and fence topping  strips... if you know what i mean.

Total cost of that fence was £20 approx and the dividing fence was £71

You hear about a garden being a blank canvas, but when I moved into my house about 18 months ago I was greeted with this as a front garden....

Those are not slabs, but just compacted earth !!!

 now I've got this .....

Not perfect by any means, but, what an improvement.

My OH has done all the carpentry work, but I have done all the gardening, most of it sitting on an old camping mat.

The 'lawn' has been nurtured from what was in the compacted earth in the before picture.

 

The back garden was in a similar state and I will post pics of this on another thread in the near future.

Verdun, my mum went through various stages with her dementia. One day she told us off for being late, according to her we were meant to be having tea with the captain!! 

She had an imaginary friend called Billy, who was with her for a couple of months. He went everywhere with her.

We asked her GP if we should go along with her 'fantasies' or tell her the truth...ie that Billy doesn't exist or that we are not dining with the captain. The GP said that it would confuse her more if we denied it. To her they are very real.

If I can be of any help to you feel free to PM me. I know what you are going through and how hard it is.
