Gardening tips
« on: January 15, 2003, 11:49:44 am »
Thought it might be worth seeing if there is any value in having a thread dealing with gardening questions and tips. I have a couple of lawn-related questions.

  • Is it too early to cut the grass?
  • When does the lawn start to grow again after the winter?
  • Is there a winter grass seed that can be sown now to cover bare patches?

Well as no one else can be bothered to help with a simple question from a star inhabitant of this asylum its up to me I suppose.
"Leaf" the lawn alone and that means walking on it.
Prune any deciduous trees now while they are dormant, not forgeting that the harder they are pruned the more they grow back!
Apply Spring fertiliser in rainy weather during March, with a light cut when growth shows towards April.
The writer takes no responsibility if it all goes wrong.

Driveways & block paving.

I plan to get my drive block paved.   Can any of the forum members recommend any particular suppliers, or warn me of bad experiences they have had from suppliers.

I didn't see rogue traders last week, but have heard enough about driveways going wrong.  Also I will obviously not be buying from one of the adverts with a mobile phone contact number which seem to be posted through the door every other day
