Bindweed in my lawn :(

Posted: 15/07/2015 at 20:57

Lawn weed killer should control it burnmw.  Cut lawns too closely and you set it up for other weeds to establish. Close cut grass is weaker.  I suggest raising blades and spot weed killing as and when.

Lyn, what I mean is get the best variety for your soil....viz., if you have alkaline soil go,for a good named red variety.  If you have acid soil go for a good named blue variety.

Busy morn.

Winter,  well are as canny as me!  Got a cheesecake yesterday for £1 50 less because wrong price listed.  Store had to honour the price.

new agastaches were here on the doorstep at lunch time.    Potted on ...into 3 litres....and watered.

i'm so tempted to post a pocture of my plants not planted yet.  They look good too. ....agastaches, dahlias, echinaceas, aeoniums, even some,shrubs.  Must resist planting most of them this summer though as garden is pretty much as I want it for now.  Have designs for them in fhe autumn. 

Sun now and very warm/humid
