Lovely sunny and feeling v warm.  Back from a walk to the beach and it all looks and feels like spring.....well, it is just around the corner

just placed an order with an offer of free postage.  Phoned to ask for another order I placed with them recently to have free postage too.  Result!  Free postage and a double supply of plants for free "for my trouble".   Wonder if my local garage will give me free petrol today, as its christmas .  

 

Raw manure under new turf?

Or you could use a cultivator or even a rake to loosen top few inches.  Secure a nice tilth.  At least your soil is firm and wont settle.

(a cultivator is such a useful tool.  I use it constantly. I made mine by bending fork tines at 90 degrees, approx, and this comveniently and easily breaks up top inches)

Hazel you are a gem.   And so wise.  So sensible.    (Almost mentioned bad knees in my post because I know many have this problem).  

Fairly sure a similar question will arise again ....it has been raised before a few times.....So the replies will be interesting.    Similarly,  weeds in lawns then will be dug out and weed and feed not used ????
