Weed grass

Mowing with blades set lower will,help.  Raking before mowing to lift the grass too.  Slashing the thick grass with a knife too

shade or sun

What plant Christine?

It probably is simply not shooting yet.  I think you will see it shooting very soon

aliesh, Rozanne meets your criteria well.  Johnsons Blue flowers over a shorter period, certainly not a summer long flowering plant.

did you buy Rozanne as a bare root or small plug?   if so it will take time to produce a flowering plant. I would buy a plant growimg in at least a 1 litre or garden centre. it will flower this  year.

purple pillow is good purple.  Orion a good blue.

Why do you want to use wood ash?  You need to be careful wood has been treated could put toxins into your soil.

now you know you have acid soil what ideas do you have for planting?  Blueberries would enjoy it there if you fancied fruit 

Anyone done any gardening today?

Thinned beetroot and spring onions.  The carrot thinning will be done tomorrow ...a job I hate. Parsley now ready to plant out too.

Sandy soil

Plus osteospermum, caryopteris, ceratostigma, santolina, artemisia powys castle, nepeta, helianthemums, pittosporum, winter heathers, eryngiums, STIPA tennuissima, Festuca, caresx comans bronze and buchanii, convolvulus cneorum, etc

Runny, dont just bury manure ..mix it with your soil from surface down......mind you, I expect you know that anyway
