A wet morning but brighter now

no wet rain there Dove 

with all that rain over several hours stipa gigantea is already back to its full height.  

Lupins help with cutting back...

Dar, my thinking exactly.  As soon as flowering starts to go over removing the first signs of seed pod formation will keep the plants flowering for much longer

hello forkers

wet, very wet this morning.  The sort of rain we need overnight and now.  But cooler too. not a nice morning in prospect.

My feeling is that the ground was not consolidated enough before turf laying.

Matthew send a letter and email to those who laid the turf.  Still comtinue to ring them.  This will establish thst you were dissatisfied from the start. Get them to come back and assess the situation.

however, walking on newly laid turf is a bad idea.  Dont do that.

A few years back a neighbour.....tenant there...had a  leylandii growing too near my boundary wall.  So one day, armed with a sharp saw, I went over and cut it down.  Prob 9' tall but thin stem. glad I did.  Another, much further away, grew huge and ultimately needed a tree surgeon.  

Not recommended but effective .  Wouldnt you like to be my neighbour?
