    Was well manured before dry spell makes a big difference ... and it's shaded all round even though it is South West facing .. It is badly burned around curbs where grounds works lads kept concrete behind curbs too high but it will come . Tip .. don't cut lawn too tight in dry weather it stresses grass too much and it holds any dew better .




  • Just started raining where i am at the moment.

    Usually only see them at dawn or dusk...

    There is a small area of nice green grass where water wicks from the pond.

    These were taken through a window - I was hiding inside the house.

    What is the harvesting process?
    Cut the head off after full bloom and let dry out or...?

    Don't cut it, leave it to dry out for a few weeks before cutting.

    4/5 weeks too early??


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,979 ✭✭✭blackbox


    Not at all. Snowdrops are always very early.

    It will be a a good while before my daffodils come out.


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,195 ✭✭✭GrumpyMe


    Some are up and out already - south facing in the "sunny" east!

    Hi, anyone got a tutorial on how to attach or embed a photo image


  • Hosted Moderators Posts: 22,999 ✭✭✭✭beertons


    Upload as an attachment. Post it. Click on picture, highlight the address. Then go to edit, and paste it between [img][/img]

    That's what I do.


  • Moderators, Arts Moderators, Recreation & Hobbies Moderators, Social & Fun Moderators Posts: 76,092 Mod ✭✭✭✭New Home


    But you need more than 8 posts to be allowed to do it.
