Busy morning.  Carrots duly thinned.  Watered.  Seaweed extract later on them. Runner beans in boxes now.  Tomatoes potted on. 

Beautifully in the garden 

locally a disabled guy in a wheelchair was attacked by a girl and 3 lads yesterday.  Beaten up for the fun of it.......????  Whenever these thugs are identified I hope they will be pictured in the press.  Hopefully the same treatment will be meted out to them.

Don't put another daphne in that spot though Heather.  Never good practise to put a similar plant in same spot

How to solve my moss destroyed lawn !!

Have to speak up for lawns.....thee is nothing emotionally, aesthetically and pleasing than having our own piece of turf 

Richard I would stop your raking now. If bare patches scatter seed.  Feed with balanced lawn feed and water it in next day.  

could you make a border around your lawn to minimise the area that doesn't grow well?  Not straight edges but curving?  It may be that you need to do a little repair work after each winter.  Perhaps invest in electric lawn scarifier too

With all this heat and dry weather you need to water it in Asap budsgardens.  Can you borrow a hose or buy one?  Friday is a long way off and your lawn is likely to suffer I think. Relying on rainfall too is risky.....

Yes I'm afraid they will root and grow .....without any doubt at all Welsh Daffodil.  I suggest you let them grow and spray with the strongest glyphosate mix you can get. Readily  available.  Make sure conditions are good for the spray,,viz., at least 6 hours of dry weather and,,ideally, not in hot sunshine.
