Hey, that's impressive fairy 

baldy wormy lawn

My penny worth.   I suspect leatherjackets and chafers....they did the damage in autumn.

However, I also feel Dove is right .....too wet and the worms are coming to the surface.    They aren't the reason for bare or dead areas.  You would also see worm casts.  

When it dries out a little I would spike and rake the "lawn" ......in order to create a fine tilth for re seeding in early April.  A scattering of fertiliser after spiking and raking would not be a bad thing either.

For next year I would consider nematodes to control leatherjackets and chafers in late summer

Epsom Salts

I find it a very economical purchase though.....a teaspoon goes a long way.  Not just on ericaceous plants but I use it on tomatoes early in the season and on many plants including hellebores as a tonic.

Hiya dove

Never get to hear GQT now.  Have to record it.  

I seem to get putting on right most  of the time now but I know there are "wrong" times to do it......when growth  is not taking place or if roots have not occupied pot.  

Glad fairy's wand has been serviced and her powers fully restored

Lovely morning but now frequent showers...hmmmmm

Punkdoc I have no idea now what the wind up merchant is saying....I have ignored him on the forum.  I feel exactly the same way about bullies. I'm  aware he is causing issues but I am convinced he has problems or lives in a fantasy world.  I have doubts he even has much of a garden....prob pinch one now from google...ha ha .  As a Samaritan I am aware of such behaviour.  Best ignore him and encourage others to do the same.

Busy morn...may join local credit union as an advisor but few details to clarify 

Will pot on lupins again this pm....they are growing so fast.  Will go into 3 litre pots.  

 Yippe!  My hostas will be dispatched on Monday.
