Plant now or in spring?

Posted: 20/09/2014 at 11:27

Yes cornishclare ...another cornwallonian ?.....I agree with  delaying the planting until spring.   Use the tme to incorporate of compost.  

Even though the grass is apparently dead I would trench in the top few inches ...burying upside down prob about 9" deep.  Then mix in your compost above it.  I would not add fertiliser just yet....it will largely be wasted.  I think late February is best time to apply organic granular fertiliser such as fish blood and bone. 

One further point ......often grubs of different sorts inhabit lawns so regular digging over autumn will expose them to the birds.  

Concerning the slope a picture will be good

actea brunette and salvia uliginosa (been flowering for weeks and no sign of stopping) behind.  prob - no does - need deadheading in there but this is an easy, very low maintenance area that also holds some 20 hellebores so when the summer stuff does go the winter stars start their show

No rain here.  Very warm and muggy and still.  Hot yesterday and if the sun pops out it will be hot again.
