Hi Clarice

Lawn looking very lush , even in the winter.

We used to get Leather-jackets when we had grass, do you suffer with them at all? I think they cause the grass to go yellow and die.

Tell me, is that a verbena homestead purple in the distance? that is a nice plant isn't it, apparently very big in the usa!

Take care, Micky 45.

Hi Mick yes it is verbena, in winter its usually starlings make a mess of the lawn, mind you Mr & Mrs blackbird dont help hopping all over it and pulling worms out of it, good job i like wildlife. You take care aswell.

I have never fed my lawn after autumn until the spring, so do you think I should feed it in winter?

18 Dec, 2009


Well i feed it this as like i say the birds make a real mess of it, think i'd still do it though as it says on the packet it does your lawn good, and i have to admit i do not get any weeds or clover in my lawn in summer, so wether its me feeding summer and winter i dont know, but this bottle does a couple of winters so its not costing much to do it.
