Thanks for the help, I'll know what to keep an eye out for now.  It's Verdun's fault that I decided to give Agastache a go.  He kept showing photos and they looked so lovely.  It's Verdun's fault that I have given a few ornamental grasses a try too.  I've got Briza Media growing from seed and I bought Carex Fishers Form and Everest.

Sounds like you have put it on too thickly.  It will probably scorch the lawn leave blackish patches but hopefully it will recover.  Hopefully someone will have have experienced a similar problem and be able to help.

Can anyone tell me if this problem persists or if it goes away eventually.  I'm getting the garbled error message.   The photo does load but it takes longer than normal.

Unless you are happy to leave a window permanently open I'd keep it shut.  Not really sure what problems they might cause apart from the obvious.

Morning all,

Bekkie, what exactly did you do last night? 50 quid on the nightstand!

Had to pop to Ashwoods this morning to get mum a pressie, it was awful, you all know how much I hate going to GC.  Someone in there dropped a couple of Aubretias in my basket, didn't realise until after I had paid.  One has lime green varigated foliage that is a bit wrinkly and the other has white and green varigated leaves and quite a large flower.  Very pretty. Must say they had some lovely Hellebores on sale, but I resisted, whish I hadn't now.

Popped round to see mum and took her a little flower arrangement in a georgeous pot.  Bought her birthday one home so I can replant that for Easter.

BL I think the lurgie I had last year must have moved across country.  I became ill in November and didn't really feel well until April.  This year (touch wood) I've been much better, so perhaps it built up my immune system.

I've had a quick mouch round the garden lots coming up.  Quick question.  what do agastache blue boa look like when they are coming through and when do they usually begin to show?  Not shouting just put it in bold so it would stand out.  Haven't grown any before so don't really know what to look for.

Happy mothers day everyone.

Just booked a trip down to Cornwall for Spring Bank Holiday.  Whole family going down to Polperro for our 40th Wedding Anniversary.  Really looking forward to it.

Feel really cold today.  Popped out and trimmed the lavender and raked up some lawn moss.  But that was it really.  Have put a small heater in the greenhouse it has a frost setting so I'll be making sure it works and then I'll put some of my starter plants out.  It will mean I'll have more space to sow seeds?  Haven't had time to read all I've missed but hope everyone is OK.

Not much relevant to me in the first one, but I did enjoy watching it.  Haven't seen the second episode yet I have it recorded, so may watch this afternoon while Hubby watches the footie.
