Just a thought...a realisation Dove.  Miss Marple doesn't drive, does she?  But you drive a convertible.  See, Holmes is fhe name.  cecil, er, I mean Sherlock 

worm casts

Ian you really can't kill those worms.  

I admit I used to....a special worm killer.  I quickly realised the chemical was persistent and could filter through to the grass where young children and my dog played.  

I understand your frustration.....I wanted the perfect lawn too.  

Posy's solution?  Do you really want moles....mole hills...in your lawn?  Then you really would have a terrible lawn.

Ian, don't brush wet worm casts.....they won't disperse and will make a mess of your lawn.   use a stiff broom when dry. Avoid using organic feeds on your lawn

Ryan

mine would be flowering now had I not cut it down.  Not really unusual....if conditions are favourable and no frost to knock it back it will flower now.  Just enjoy it.  It's not climate change though

Which witch hazel?

Hello Cheerybeth

I grow just one...mollis pallida.  Flowers now starting to open.  It is delightfully fragrant but I cannot compare it to others. I have planted a couple elsewhere....Dianne and Arnold Promise, if I recall correctly....but I think my own has better scent

I suggest you go online and buy online.  

Anyone else still mowing??

Heck Nut.  I didn't know it was against the law to cut grass in mid winter. I will be breaking the law again in an hour or so .      Talk of winter scent what better than the smell of new mown grass whatever time of year?

You are tempting me to Scotland Fairy.....magnificent views.  Nothing like that here.....mind you our sea views are pretty good too 

Daffodils are sprouting too early!

To be honest,,this autumn is much like usual here as far as plants, bulbs are concerned. Slightly warmer I guess because no cold weather so far.  I have busy lizzies still in flower on large plants.  Cannas still going strong.  However, this is per usual.  (Famous last words...no doubt a frost will descent overnight now

Sun is poking through....must be 14 or 15 degrees in the garden which isn't bad. 

Actually, blue sky and brilliant sunshine now....off to sunbathe
