• How can I stop weeds taking over my lawn? +

    There are lots of things you can do to help prevent weeds from running riot - correct mowing, feeding the grass to increase its vigour (and to help it crowd out the weeds), and regular treatment with a selective weedkiller will all help halt the invasion. Regularly applying a combined treatment of weed and moss control in the spring and summer when the weeds are actively growing will keep them in check and produce a lush, healthy lawn better able to resist weed invasion. Try using Lawn Weedkiller Ready to Use 2 for a quick and easy ready to use formulation, ideal for spot treatment.

  • When planting in pots and planters? +

    Can be planted in pots all year round, apart from periods of frost, the plants purchased in pots or containers. You should use clean containers, new or well cleaned. Do not hesitate to plant closely enough to get an instant effect. It should allow 1 to 2 cm from the surface of the earth and the rim of the pot or planter for that water does not overflow with every watering.

  • What is the difference between an autumn and a spring/summer lawn fertilizer? +

    Lawn fertilizers for use in the growing season i.e. spring and summer, have lots of nitrogen to replace the high quantities lost through cutting the grass. In autumn and winter we don't mow the lawn so frequently, so the grass doesn't need much nitrogen. But potassium and phosphates are important to help develop a strong root system and help 'harden' the grass. A lawn that grows poorly in the spring looks patchy and has lots of yellow blades - this can be avoided by feeding in the autumn.
