Preparation for sowing grass seed ?

Posted: Yesterday at 20:03

Agree with cutting lawns a little higher.  I have a couple of nice lawns that once were cut...scalped...on low setting.  For past 3 years I cut on much higher setting making grass look much greener and more resistant to drought.  I still cut twice a week from spring to autumn ....mowing regularly is the single most important lawn treatment 

Where is my grass?

Ha ha sorreeeee Lyn 

hazel, because I simply found the gw site unresponsive despite trying all sorts that usually resolve it, I deleted short cut on homepage, removed my logging in info and deleted all history re gw forum.  I then clicked on gw site, logged in and reset my settings and preferences. it was when I became aware it was not a tech issue on gw site that I realised it must be a fault on my Ipad.  It worked.  Often uninstalling is enough to resolve issues.

new short cut on home page

magnolias flowering in numbers down here signal that spring has arrived in Cornwall.  The earliest they have ever flowered.  Caerhays Castle, famous for  magnolias, has today declared Cornwall is open for the spring...spring has come today. 

Must admit today at times has felt like that
