There are times when I don't post, can't post or choose not to post. 

It would be easier if, when we don't post, there aren't questions about it on the forum.

my feeling is that Jo will post when she chooses to.  

There are a few who haven't posted for a long time.......we can ask about them.  

It's an open forum of all sorts ....some will be offended, some will choose to be offended and we all have our "styles" .  An offending post need not be read and  will fade naturally anyway.

One way or another the forum will continue

grass cuttings mulch for raspberries

Posted: 03/01/2016 at 19:11

I domt like grass cuttings as a mulch. they tend, in my experience, to add grass weeds.  Amongst rapsberries could be a problem.  

I know someone who is currently spreading grass cuttings as a mulch.......been doing this since last spring.  

Grass cuttings are also very slimey.....smelly too.

I have considered mixing with straw or sawdust.  For me best used mixed in the compost bin

Never just scatter any fertiliser on surface.  Always scratch/tickle it in

Liri, no we will win this.  The run rate would have slowed and the inituative given back to S Africa.  Sport is about kidology too  !

Olives grow well down here...planted widely.  Think a long early hot spring and summer is required for the fruit though.
