Great job there Allan.
How many cases of Black Bush should I get him for doing mine?....

He's been known to look after gardens in some of the properties of Cultra - some of which have football pitch sized gardens.

So - no harm asking, eh? ;)

Let's hope it recovers. Wrong time of year to be scarifying really. It'll be full of weeds in a few weeks. Late autumn or early spring is best.

Just got back today Phil - both lawns look fantastic.

My neighbour did this work a few weeks ago.

He's won awards for his work on golf courses and greens, so I'm sure he knows what he's doing with a lawn

You should ask him for a Brazilian Riggs (y)
It was in his list of options - but I feared you may have gotten over excited.

He does do a mean stripe down the lawn though ;)

Lawns are finally at the stage I've been trying to achieve for years.

After several seasons of scarifying and feeding/weeding, our lawn isn't looking too shabby nowadays either.

After carefully "rearing" lots of Cosmos flowering plants from seed this year, (first time ever) they have grown beautifully once potted. But as for flowering, they seem, to say the least, reluctant; so far we have the one:

why is the term rearing in inverted commas?

Because I am not sure that plants need "rearing", just sowing and watering really. Animals need rearing.

That's tough, Dave. (Is it?) Could it be lucrative?

I hope this turns out to work positively for you Dave. You have a great deal of specialist knowledge that must be worth a lot to someone? How long is your notice period? Of course, being on gardening leave does not preclude a job search/interviews.

most kind gents.
I'm on GL until mid Sept .
I have my consultation on Fri..this will be to discuss all the none options available.
The plans are stupid but it's no longer my problem.
I was due to go to a site where am explosion supposedly took place.
Not going now, obviously.

As noted before, these decisions were made by a Boston consultancy group...who asked why wasnt dave selling gas valves to a particular OEM?
"Because they dont make gas appliances," they were told...just the 3 times.

My ex boss has rung me, thanking for the manner that I took the news..I explained that I suggested over ten years back that this day would come.
They have no interest in the direct support of my type of OEMs...this will come back to bite them.
