Morning green guy

i would have used a straight granular lawn feed unless your lawn has weeds or moss.

make sure ts watered in well even if rain is forecast.  Try to keep up with regular mowing...once a week and dont mow too closely.  

Raking, aerating, spiking, etc can all be done in the autumn so for me it's feeding, watering and mowing.

Plants.  The new ones but all types of plants.  I'm not interested in behind the scenes stories.

In all seriousness, some of the worst driving is around a local primary school.  The majority of drivers are women and they are BAD.  I dont know why but increasingly bad drivers both male and female.

Peat free compost

Most composts now are awful.  I bought a few bags from my local asda store .....not good at all.  

For temporary ...seed sowimg,potting on before planting out, etc.......usage these composts will do a job.

for more permanent jobs john innes is the answer.

for summer displays I mix in dried manure and it helps give body and nutrients.

i think grobags will be just the same Ivyhouse 

big plants or little

A 3 litre plant should be perfect for planting now. Perhaps a 5 litre if you can.  A 12 litre plant is a big no from me.
