Regarding roots, as a complete aside, I once heard that you shouldn't overwater a plant - you wanted to starve it to a certain extent so its roots grew deep. Any truth to this?? Sorry to digress.

Welcome aboard SZ!

G'day Angus & :welcome:
when I was a wee lad & Blackjacks & Fruit Salad were 4 for a penny, my bestest pal was Angus McForgotten. I realise you're not the only Angus but on the offchance did you ever abide at Gibraltar Close in B.S.E ?

Great chickens by the way, good layers, friendly too.

Top tip for top lawns: Aerate & liberally rake sharp sand onto lawn in effect raising height of lawn over time. This combats soil compaction from stampeding homo sapiens & grass has to grow up thro' it encouraging root formation.

(an exerpt from "I know my Onions, Pitcher Plants too !" by Spartacus Greenfinger)

from experience, I've noticed than when trying to force root growth in Asian coconuts using the H20 withdrawal method, the phenomena appropriately called "brown & dead" occurs, an effect that even my local Reiki Master Bagwan Rajneeshinod couldn't reverse.

Peace on your lawn !
