I fail to understand why- once again- someone opens a discussion with few details and doesn't return to see what the responses have been?

Talkback: How to mow your lawn

Is it too late to mow a lawn with very long grass? If I did would the grass die? I live in the North East of England.

No-grass wont die

It has probably stopped growing now-when the temperature drop to around 8-10C it tends to come to a stop.

You can cut if you want to-just not too short-blades set high-not if it is too wet or frosty-just a matter of picking the right moment

problem soil

Have you done a ph test on the soil?-if so what was the reading?

Adding organic matter to the soil-manure compost etc- will lower the ph level making it less alkaline

Foxes are less annoying in the garden than children. They deserve our protection, I am so fed up with people moaning about wildlife.

If you have lost chickens to foxes as I have,had a dog caught mange from them as I have,a pet rabbit taken from a neighbours garden ,holes dug in lawns- then you might understand why I-and probably a lot of people- do not want foxes in their gardens

In an urban enviroment they are a pest.

Nothing to do with moaning about wildlife at all

Saw this in the paper today-A Royal Ode


  Dust your pantry, move your jugs.

Prepare for tea towels, spoons and mugs,

there’s news to make you weep with mirth

We’ve got another royal birth

Our austere country need not grieve,

for William’s missus can conceive.

Yea, every other story’s guff

’cos someone’s up the Royal duff

Iran and Israel may soon be nuking

but we’re ­obsessed with morning puking,

forget our youth who can’t find work

and take a look at Witchell’s smirk

Pray, go and tell your auntie Mabel

to forget the boy born in a stable,

’cos Kate’s had a tweet from Barack Obama

and a Facebook message from the Dalai Lama

Who cannot wait to see the pics

of little baby’s early tricks?

The snappers too will catch our Kate

not though when she doth lactate

This proud arrival will change our nation

it truly is a bless’d creation,

for next in line it will be third

even if it’s born a bird.
