Would turfed not look odd in an estate agent's description?

Remember how we all jeered at the use of the word ' refurbish' when it was used by the American Ambassador about his London home. Now everybody uses the word!

Words go in and out of use.

A well-lawned property, perhaps.

Take a couple of photos back to where you bought it from and ask what they are going to do about it. It looks in its death throes, if not dead already.

archiepem, I have read your post again and I fail to understand why you are throwing away valuable chicken bedding. It has to be composted, but it is a wonderful compost accelerator. Put it all in your compost with grateful thanks to your cooks for giving you such useful stuff.

Remember Elsanta is the strawberry mostly found in supermarkets and nobody rates the flavour very highly. They mostly stock it because it travels well, but that should not be a consideration with the variety you grow in your garden.

I think strawberry seed needs light to germinate; so sow them on the surface. You will only get small alpine-type strawberries from seed.

Not convinced there is any danger from cooking pans either. Well, certainly not in comparison with all the other chemicals we are daily assaulted with.

What is this?>??

It is usual to sow seeds on a flat surface, so use a little tamper to flatten the compost (gently), sow the seeds then scatter some more fine compost on top of the seeds if that is appropriate. Some seeds prefer light to trigger germination; it will say on the packet.

Shows you have clean air. When the shrub is dry you can take a brush to it if you can avoid the prickles.

If you cut it back before flowering you will lose this year's flowers, so I would do it straight after flowering.
