Hello gold croft

Nice to meet a fellow grass grower.

Depends on which grasses you have but don't do it yet.

So, what do you have, what size pots are they already in amd how long have they been there?  Have you divided any yet? Most grasses benefit from division.

Punkdoc, but just remember the many you helped recover from dire circumstances. Not many of us can say that 

Nemasys Vine Weevil Nematodes

Jess forget the soil thermometer.  You need to wait several weeks yet.  Nematodes will simply die now ..besides nobody will supply yet.

Imcreasingly I'm in the minority here but Provado vine weevil killer will work now.  It will kill those grubs regardless of soil temp or season.  

For me treatment with Provado to save your plants now is worth it.  Then you can revert to nematodes in late spring.  Then a cycle of spring and autumn nematodes every year. Works for me.

Woody has taken the words out of my mouth .....I want them back 

I grow just 2 jap acers and only one really well.  Too near the coast.  However just a few miles inland there are some fabulous acers growing.  I love them.  bamboogie., I am very envious you can grow so many.  What would I give to be able to grow Acer Aureum varieties?  

My advice re pruning is how I manage to grow my own fairly small varieties  as well as possible.  I think your own expertise is prob far greater than my own 

Is this honey fungus

Used to get huge loads of leaf mould from local woods. ,lovely stuff but I began to fear the introduction of honey fungus into my garden so stopped doing this.  (dead trees in the woods, etc)

Bob, what do you think?  Too cautious or am I right to be wary?
