BBC Gardeners World Magazine features CastClear

BBCGW0317 - CastClearMarch 01 heralds the start of spring and the garden media are quick to capatilise on the start of the gardening year with bumper editions of their respective editions providing kick start tips for the readership's garden.

The latest March issue of BBC Gardeners World Magazine is no exception to this rule with lots of features including a couple on a Guide to Organic Lawn Care by TV Gardener and Presenter Alan Titchmarsh, plus Lawn Problems Solved on page 72 were the BBC Writer & Designer Sue Fisher looks at the right products and tools that lawn owners will need this spring in their quest for a better lawn.

One of the products featured in the feature is The Lawn Company's worm cast deterrent called CastClear, the solution to lawn soil casts, available from over 330 stockists or direct from The Lawn Shop.

It's a lawn soil cast suppressant and a deterrent.  It's proven in control on both lawns and sports turf.  The lawn soil casts are starting to appear now, fuelled by the current wet weather and will increase with the more rain we get going forward into the spring months.

It is unique in using a surfactant system that moves the nutrient into the upper soil structure and fixes it there providing good persistence of deterrent effect until breaking down to natural nutrients absorbed by plant roots.

As the soil air to water ratio changes in the more traditional autumn months, you will notice an increase in lawn soil cast activity. The wetter the autumn or winter, the greater the worm activity will be. The root zone of the lawn will become spongy as the worms undermine the upper surface and mowing will become difficult, especially with a cylinder mower. The use of the lawn will diminish as a result of the difficult surface conditions.
