    lawn feed and weed

    It depends a lot on the lawn in question. What weeds are there and what nutrients are needed. It there was a simple straight forward answer the general public would not need any help!

    Wood wanted

    Picked up some wood from a local tree surgeon with my trailer today so i have a good start. Best thing was it was free of charge so many thanks and a bottle will be on its way. Still looking if anyone else has some.

    Wood wanted

    I can see the back of my wood store now. Fairly sure i have enough for this winter but it is a good time to look for wood for next winter. I am a disabled guy ( broke my back in 2003) but still like to get as hands on as possible. I use an electric chain saw and there is a young guy that helps with splitting. I am looking for arb arisings.. Anything from branches to rings or up to 1 metre lengths. Will take anything and happy to pay something for better wood. I have farm house in Kings Bromley and a field in Yoxall near Burton on Trent

    Tree planting- watering time table

    How big are the trees? What is the soil type? How important is that that none die or will it simply mean replacing those that do? Often this is the cost effective solution

    Tractor exhaust extraction

    Why is the tractor parked in the middle of the shed? Could it not be parked in the doorway with the exhaust outside?

    Removing Dogwood hedge

    Don't fall into the trap of thinking a stronger dose of glyphosate will do a better job. It could kill top growth so fast that it cannot be translocated all the way to the roots. Use the recommended dose and as others have said it is late in the season to be very effective. I would contact an agronomist for advice first.

    The future is sitting in a deck chair whilst the drone takes the saw.
