If you add a tablespoon of tomato juice to your lady dog's food every day it stops the dead patches of grass. I once heard it as a snippit on the radio and tried it. I don't know why it works but it does seem to. Never had a male dog so I can't comment on the effect on him. It was traditional in the...

This is absolutely NOT a personal attack on you Clara :lol: But I do agree with a lot that Fee said. There has to be compromise. If we cut out everything from our lives that might be bad for us then there would not be a lot left. I smoke, I drink and at times I eat food that is bad for me - I have e...

I did it one year by placing them on the surface and then covering in black plastic then cutting holes for the shoots to come through as they pushed the membrane up.
