I know that you can ignore people on the forum, but would a 'block' feature be better.

On another forum I'm on there is a block feature, so the person you have blocked can't send you PMs, messages or even look at your profile.

I know it sounds harsh, but certain people can't, or won't, take a hint.

Hello Lorraine. Don't be shy. We won't bite, our mouths are full of cake. Well most of us anyway.

Thanks again all. I think it will be the fork again. Slow and steady. I must remember to only do a bit at a time.

Or deligate it to the under gardener.

Thanks all. Looks like a big no no then. I did think that the spikes were not long enough to do any good.

Thanks Dove, that was one of main concerns.

As some of you know, I have a problem with my back and I am always looking at ways of making gardening easier for me to manage.

One product I have seen in the garden centres are "areating shoes". You fasten these onto the bottom of your shoes, walk all over the lawn, and the spikes, supposedly,  aerate your lawn.

I keep looking at them and wondering if they really work, or are they just a gimmick. At  the moment my aerating is done with a fork.

Has anyone tried them or got any opinions of them.

Worries & troubles that affect Forum friends.
