KEF, I do try....honestly, truly and hands on heart. 

Why cant people see 2 guys getting their "digs" in and laugh or condemn them privately......or ignore them.  It should not  affect anyone else.  I don't take anything personally on the forum.    .I don't read every post here!!! 

I have strong views and express them and there is now a dedicated thread for them......especially on this new style forum people can easily avoid this thread

PD. I posted this morning on this thread and added, without thinking, without ulterior motive,  the "lovely messages".  the two were not linked    

stevo, we can mention everything relevant.  This is our future we are deciding with all the odds, the powers that be and the "elite" trying desperately to keep things as they are for their sakes. Our borders are my main worry too.  Logically, how on earth can we accommodate the numbers trying to get here? 

This is the thread for our views, to express ourselves and do so without being personal. 6 weeks left to do so.

 No PD, you added to this thread a few weeks back, apologising for doing so, (you once said politics should not be discussed )  and implied you would show more tolerance. Remember?

ALL VIEWS HERE. no personal attacks.  A big, big issue with serious repercussions so if we don't speak up now we never will 

Many people I meet don't want to think about the referendum. 

Lawn treatment and when to overseed?

Posted: 06/05/2016 at 08:27

Morning Enjoy the Sun 

possibly you did not spread the evergreen complete evenly enough.??

I would not scarify now.....for a couple of weeks at least your lawn will look awful and with the hotter westher may suffer for some time.  

You cant reseed after using evergreen complete because the weedkiller element is still there.  Wait at least another 4 weeks 

I would do use a spot lawn weedkiller spray 

Talkback: Slugs

Amanda, there are times when slug pellets are useful

agree there should be a warning on them but who reads warnings these days?   Car alarms,,house alarms, lorries reversing, etc., are commonplace sounds thaf mean nothing.

i use pellets....sparingly and selectively.  A warm humid night is perfect this time of year because they do work then.  Not thousands thrown all the garden but tucked under slate or board.

salt thrown onto the soil caz is pointless.....will damage plants for a start.  A salt solution to put slugs and snails in, nematodes and considerate use of pellets is the way.  

I have posted pictures of hostas without any damage here and I fully expect thus to be the case this year so my way is effective for me

PD, if you can continue to comment on this thread then so can I so more comments about me "stirring" ok?  My views are as important as yours.

I am for leaving the EU.  

The more we hear, pros and cons, about EU the better.

Question Time last night showed how ill informed the panel the pub they would have had to get their coats 

Disappointed in GW response

Alex, I think every one of us agrees with you. It has been a monumental cock-up. 

I think we are all giving it a go but I too have been looking elsewhere.

hopefully in a couple of weeks it will improve.  Forum has become a little bland too prob because of the new system so a few cheery threads folks
