How can I fix my patch lawn?

Posted: 08/04/2016 at 16:21

Ryan, yes.  Its how I do it.

the polythene bag method is messy.  However it does work.  I found seed germinated in a matter of days but Im not sure it established any better than seed sown insitu.  Grass should germinate in 10 to 14 days now.  

You can cover with polythene or fleece where you have sown seed.  Pin down.   I reckon it germinates in about a week.  protected from birds and pests too Ryan

Sloping boggy garden

Mcowan,

do you want that grass there?  

I would plant it up....dogwoods will take up and enjoy the moisture.  Ferns, astilbes, cimicifugas, astrantias, hydrangeas, arum lilies, hostas, and a couple of evergreen shrubs like sarcoccocas, camelias......actually loads of stuff would suit there.

Anyone done any gardening today - Version 2

early this morning I attacked a large eunymous with my favourite garden toy viz. cordless extendable  hedgetrimmer.  Very tall and needed to climb a wall to access it.  Now looking dense and conical.  My neighbour .....I helped yesterday and was rewarded with a couple of lagers......came round with another batch of lager.  Glad I didnt drink the lager before I used hedgetrimmer . Getting to like my neighbour.  However, he did mention needing help with a few overgrown bushes
