Patchy & Bumpy Grass!

Posted: 05/05/2014 at 18:22

If it's not a new house, and if you'd rather have a go at trying to improve it yourself, i can tell you what I did in my first garden which looked very similar. I raked my lawn by hand with a leaf rake, I then prodded the lawn all over with a big garden fork. I mixed sand with some compost and grass seed and sprinkled it all over. I then watered it lightly, and luckily it rained a few days later. I did this a few times over about nine months and it looked loads better.  I kept off it best I could. 

Good luck with it.

Earthing up I shall do. Thanks Dove. 

Not your plums too pansy?!  Lets hope the nobby greens don't come a cropper as well!?! At least your Marjorie's are ok.  

Is it just me, or does this sound like a Benny Hill sketch?!

Hello folks, have just noticed that my potato leaves have gone a bit black and limp in part. I'm guessing it was the frost (and not blight - although I don't know what blight looks like, anyone know?).   Do you think it'll have much effect on the crop? Will they recover? Anything I should do? thanks muchly x
