FAQ

  • Has your plant been destroyed by the frost? +

    Temperatures can drop to -8 ° to -10 ° C in the heart of winter, and this can have a big impact on your plants. As a precaution, it is recommended to protect the most sensitive plants with mulch on the ground or at the base of the trunks. In addition, you should also be wary of late frosts, which can even occur as late as April.

  • How do I stop moss coming back? +

    Feed your lawn regularly with an all purpose fertiliser such as Phostrogen, raise the cutting height of your lawn mower, plant shade loving grass varieties in shady areas or let more light get to the lawn by thinning overhead trees and improve the soil drainage on heavy clay or poorly drained soils.

  • 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.
