Thyme lawn

Or maybe a chamomile lawn..

If the area is south facing and dry then thyme may be your best bet, if not see what you think about using chamomile

It's probably due to temperature.
The warmer it is the better the scent.
The warmer it is, more volatile substances are released that make the scent stronger.
My philadelphus doesn't have much of a scent this year.

If there's power getting to the motor and nothing is happening, the something more serious may be wrong.
Is there an internal fuse?

I'd give customer support a call in the morning and see if they have any suggestions

Ok what's wrong now!!??!!

Ribes Sanquineum

I don't know what the weather's been like in your neck of the woods, but my patio has been under inches of water several times over the past few weeks.

Is the ground waterlogged by any chance?
Or bone dry?

I'm sure a ribes expert will be along soon

whats this please

Looks pretty to me too, the leaves look familiar but no idea what it may be.

Does it matter if it's a weed - if you like it, keep it.

Have you tried plugging it in to a different socket?

Are you using an extension cable with a separate fuse that may have blown?

Thanks all for your kind words.

As I divide and take cuttings (with varying degrees of success) of my perennials I'm slowly filling in the gaps and it's nice to have some free gap-fillers, and of course saves on the weeding

I usually hoe down all the toadflax and feverfew that appears all over parts of my garden, but I thought I'd leave a few bits this year as border fillers. They grow quickly into substantial plants, flower quite early and I'll pull them up soon as flowering is over and fill the gaps with potted cosmos etc
The bearded iris/rhodos and forget me not's are all over and I've got a nice filler for a few weeks-

and some self-sown foxgloves-
