Talkback: Speedwell

Oh dear! I bought what looks very much like Speedwell though it may not be the wild variety. I'm worried now that it may spread.

Talkback: Slugs and snails and pussycat tails

I didn't know that frogs don't eat 'large slugs'  hopefully the frogs won't allow them to get large. I live of clay land and when I came here 30yrs ago I used to fill buckets of those 'orrible big black ones. since making two fairly large ponds I hardly ever see one. I suppose it could be coincidence or some other reason but I'm happy with my ponds.

Do Vine Weevel's fly?

They really are awful things, I don't think they can fly but I get them in the house, even in the bath !

No probs Gav, they don't need much heat at this time of year but move into more light when first they start to show.

Not the ideal way but at least it will make allow you to get growing and make it easier to pull out any that start to grow.

Moss

There's nothing worse than a recurring problem especially when it requires work to fix. I too had a moss problem, tried moss killer, even bought a scarifier. A friend suggested crowning the lawn so I raised the center by 4" using a mix of sand n' soil. A big job but after 3 years no moss.

Of cause a lot depends on how big your lawn is
