Lawn Aerator Shoes

Posted: 02/10/2015 at 07:53

My lawn feels hard and lumpy.  Would the aeration and adding the sharp sand help a compacted lawn.

Thanks, I've had a read. Conclusion, spikes don't go down far enough, like i thought.

Lawn aerator shoes, are they any good? Or should I just stick to a fork to aerate the lawn?

 

Buxus Hedge

I've just planted a box hedge. I'm very chuffed with myself as they are all from cuttings I have taken two years ago.

What's a good fertiliser to promotet healthy roots this autumn? I've got some one year old leafmould to top dress.

Hardy Annuals

I've probably space to germinate in the house, but once I start putting them into individual cells I won't have the room.

I'm thinking of sowing some hardy annual this month. If I leave them in the greenhouse, bog standard un-heated, will they still survive the winter. 

I live in the north east of England, it can get pretty cold where I live, as I am on the edge of the city and am semi rural. 

Any tips? Insulate the greenhouse with bubble wrap. Individual plastic covers for the trays. There's not really a lot of room in the house and come winter the central heating is on.

Thank all.

Like I say, or should add, I planted the bulbs about two years ago (could be three) and NEVER had flowers. I've just given them a tomato feed today, first time ever. 

Foxgloves, is it too late to sow?

Great idea Susan.  I'm often worried that  if I scatter seeds, then later I won't know if they are meant to be or are weed seedlings. I might try that method too.

This clump is 80cm and 30cm deep, would you divid? If so when?

What plant feed, something with slightly higher phosphorus? Think Monty Don said that for his flowering planter and suggested a tomato feed.
