I’ve Got a Crush on You?

image preview

I love aromatic plants. What’s an aromatic plant? Well, I think of it as a plant you have to do something to in order for it to release its aroma. So you have to crush the leaves or stems or possibly even tread on it, in order to appreciate its unique fragrance. This is in contrast to scented plants, usually with scented flowers – roses, jasmine or sweet peas for instance – that release their scent into the air without any input from humans. But an aromatic plant makes you work that little bit harder – you have to get up close and personal and engage with the plant in order to appreciate the scent it has to offer, unless you’re in a very sunny climate in which case the sun will draw the aromatic oils from the plant.

The moss issue this year could reasonably be described as brutal — it is everywhere, and there is very little that could be done to avoid it. The poor summer last year was abruptly halted when the rain started falling in October, and it was relentless throughout November, December, and January and only now is it showing signs of stopping (hopefully).

How to deal with moss issues

Having had such a wet summer and early autumn, lawns may be riddled with moss more so than ever.

Lawn pests with Greenhand — the leatherjacket

image preview

The leatherjacket is the larvae of the daddy longlegs or crane fly. The adult flies lay their eggs in the grass in the autumn and the resulting grubs live and grow under the soil, feeding on the roots of the grass, until they are ready to emerge as fully grown daddy longlegs the following summer.
