Hi Bennett, The same question has been asked on a number of threads, so far no one has come up with a good answer.  But you never know...

Plant Identification please

Posted: 16/03/2015 at 21:28

So far I've managed to keep the spanish ones at bay.  There were a few in the garden when I moved in but I dug them up and planted some English ones.  So far so good.

Evening all, Not taken much notice of the weather here in Worcester today.  Noticed a bit of drizzle when we went to Rhythm and Rhyme today.  Whoever decided Peppa Pig should enjoy jumping in muddy puddles should be shot at dawn!  That was another change of clothes for Mabel when we got home. 

Looks like weather is going to improve towards the end of the week so hopefullyl I'll get some gardening in when I get back home.

I have to say that I'm not noticing any problems on the Poldark front.  It's probably because I seem to be suffering from some sort of tunnel vision whenever it's on the TV.

nesting Robins

Posted: 15/03/2015 at 16:35

When I worked at the Wildlife Trust we had robbins nesting in an old broken nestbox just ouside the door of the room where we kept stationery in the courtyard.  The door was used everyday and they never bothered.  We also had housemartins nesting over another door that was really heavy and everytime it shut it really banged loudly, it never upset them, they used to come back every year.

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.
