Great - thanks for the advice!  Summer has been so fab, I'm definitely up for an Indian one!!

To mow or not to mow.........

Just a quick question - we laid some new turf to replace an ugly patio in the middle of the lawn about 3 weeks ago.  Has greened up nicely and looks good - I still have it roped off to prevent dog/kids treading on it.  How long should I protect it for, and when will it be 'safe' to mow?  Thanks xx

It is a nice shape - compact and not leggy or floppy.  Just miss the flowers

Thanks - maybe I will move a piece elsewhere and see what it does.  Its taking up quite a lot of space if it wont flower.  Have been spying other peoples for weeks, flowering away, and mine - nothing!  Leaves so soft though! xx

Moved into this house last Autumn, and was pleased to see a healthy large clump of Lamb's ears growing under the apple tree.  Its looking great, leaves lovely and growing happily, but it hasn't flowered.  Had it in previous gardens and always flowered - is there a 'type' that doesn't?  Feeling disappointed (as are the bees!).

Plant inspiration please!

Brill - those are some fab ideas thanks!!  Hadn't even thought about an obelisk - great!  And I have a bay in a large pot who either needs a huge new pot or planting out as hes looking a bit sad!  I love this site - lots of clever plant people! xxxxx

We moved to this house last Aug.  At the front we have a small 'patch', approx. 4ft x 5f, which has been planted with a lavender, heuchera, and a couple of small bland shrubs, and has a low hedge on one side, and a fence and honeysuckle on the other.  Its quite a windy spot, and semi shaded.  In the middle is a lack-luster conifer, which has seen better days, and I want to take it out.  My question is, what should I replace it with?  Want something with a bit of height (up to 6ft ish), evergreen, nothing that will spread too wide as its a small area near the front door - anyone got any ideas, please? I just cant seem to find the right thing! xxx

Jeyes fluid uses

Posted: 13/06/2014 at 22:33

Jeyes fluid is a phenol, which is toxic to cats.  I'm a Vet nurse, and have seen cats poisoned this way - not nice.  I'm not a cat fan, but would just say please be careful how you use and store it. xxxx
