How to solve my moss destroyed lawn !!

Posted: 21/04/2015 at 07:37

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.....

How about a witch hazel Lyn?

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.

What is wrong with this shrub?

Epsom salts is always available here.  a good stand by and tonic to most plants.  And cheap 

Can anyone add to this list?

Shame, cannabis plants really are attractive foliage wise 

Replant my bamboo - or kill and start again?

Bamboo is a thug dominoman.  It will do just as you have observed.......invade every part of your garden.  I don't think you will kill it whatever you do.

Could be frost Jason.....esp if you left door open.   Could also be strong sun.  Young tomato plants are sensitive things.  Or have they dried out?

you could drape fleece over them or,suspend it above them at night time and during hot times until more mature.

i once lost a whole batch of tomato plants my naivety I used too much dried cow manure and the fumes during a hot day destroyed them.  Gardening is a learning curve.
