Warning - Roundup Gel

Posted: 03/10/2014 at 00:11

I understand the main issue but roundup gel applied in the eveniNg  and at this time of  Year will not be effective.  Waste of time and money.  Applied during the day the gel will dry more quickly land be less harmful to cats and dogs.  

Talkback: Leatherjackets in lawns

Posted: 03/10/2014 at 00:06

I think Alice would simply like  a nice lawn.  Getting rid of leatherjackets that spoil her lawn is not the crime of the century.  I have a couple of nice lawns and I control leatherjackets.  I grow organic veg and fruit,,have lots of birds, bees, butterflies and at least one hedgehog.  No one will guilt trip me into not having a nice lawn when I do most things environmentally well 

I don't think coffee grounds will make the slightest difference to leatherjackets.  Use nematodes, although it is now too late for,this year, Alice.  They are organic and effective and help you achieve your nice summer.  Apply nematodes around August time

Mums glasses are now missing.  Yesterday she was minus her bottom teeth.  One of her carers has been in place for just 9 weeks.  

Changes will happen...a better  home but I have  already informed management I have taken notes in preparation for a formal complaint. 

Never  a supply,of water!  For anyone.  mums bottom sores not treated or an air cushion provided.

Morning folks   Bright, misty and sunny today

Try to keep the arum lily dry over winter.  Wet and cold is not a good  combination for arums.  However, in early spring a good  organic feed and mulch followed by occasional summer waterings will help produce plenty of foliage amd flowers.  Better out of full sun too.  Will grow in a pond ...but not over winter. ( Lobela queen Victoria ,with its purple foliage and red flowers and white Arum  lily in a pond is very nice.)
