Low Cut, Verticut and Triage

The banks have been scarified but today the flymo has been brought back out and the cutting height reduced to give them a lower cut. The guys spent all day mowing the banks removing even more thatched grass, all that remains is spiking.

Meanwhile, Joss spent the time verticutting the quad lawn, a less harsh process than scarifying. The blades pass through the grass swards cutting off horizontal shoots of stubborn long grasses rather than ripping them out, as with scarifying.
Outside the greenhouse, in the triage area, pots queue up for their Vine Weevil treatment before being allowed in for the winter, we do not want weevil in this house, see blog 11th November Vine Weevil.
