Mossy lawn tips

Posted: 09/04/2016 at 09:51

Steve, lightly rake the grass removing dead moss etc

over seed is a good time.....and rake it lightly into the soil.   In a couple of weeks, maybe 3, your grass will look much better

Brown Conifers

Steve, I think you should start again here 

yes, too small a pot and it dried out.

could I suggest a different conifer?  Taxus Standishii or any upright yew will cope better and it can be cut back without consequences.  A bigger pot....maybe not using mpc this time?....

Hollie Hock, as expected, your remarks were offensive...

Jinxy, well said.   

we are heading into a few weeks of increasingly nasty and dirty politics, increasingly hypocritical and deceitful politicians and increasingly passionate viewpoints.  No point in catering for delicate people taking offence, even on a garden forum......this referendum is about our safety, our population and our rights. Not about isolation or narrow-minded blinkered thinking.  No time for petty point scoring.  We will have to live with the outcome ....the youngsters and their families will we must get it right.

Lyn, difficult right now but one day you will look back with pleasure and satisfaction how you treated your dad.  

Your kindness is obvious.  Your love for your dad is clear to him.  Lovely

Appalling Customer Service!

Suttons recently sent me poor quality plants as did Crocus.  

Never be afraid to complain.  Often a first response is poor but persevere.  Never yet have I not eventually received satisfaction 

seems to me many of the "big boys" have become complacent ...almost negligent....whereas the smaller suppliers have upped their game price wise and quakity wise.

there are some fantastic conscientious online suppliers out there
