Nanniemo, they are good 

they will grow fast now.....I turn every day or two to keep them upright.  When the next pair of leaves form pop them into individual 9 cm pots (preferably) or spaced further apart in trays.....6 to half tray or 12 to full size tray 

How can I fix my patch lawn?

Ryan, yes.  Its how I do it.

the polythene bag method is messy.  However it does work.  I found seed germinated in a matter of days but Im not sure it established any better than seed sown insitu.  Grass should germinate in 10 to 14 days now.  

You can cover with polythene or fleece where you have sown seed.  Pin down.   I reckon it germinates in about a week.  protected from birds and pests too Ryan

Sloping boggy garden

Mcowan,

do you want that grass there?  

I would plant it up....dogwoods will take up and enjoy the moisture.  Ferns, astilbes, cimicifugas, astrantias, hydrangeas, arum lilies, hostas, and a couple of evergreen shrubs like sarcoccocas, camelias......actually loads of stuff would suit there.
