Nobody loves me......

Go and Eat WormsNursery Rhymes never age.  Some are as old as Old Wive's Tales that survive the generations.  Lawn care is a science that follows the principles of The Science and Practice of Turf Culture and one great learning text book was Turf Culture by Frank Hope, sadly out of publication.

This was the main publication that up and coming turf managers referred to.  Sadly, some lawn experts appear to have been reading the book back to front and trying to change the principles of turf culture throughout the seasons so do not believe all that you hear or are told about when to perform aspects of turf culture.

One funny nursery rhyme about lawns is one about eating worms.  Worms are infact the richest form of protein known to man and in some third world countries, worms are grown and harvested and ground for flour to make staple foods.  For lawn owners in the UK, the worms do a great job... if only they could be stopped from depositing their worm casts on the surface of the lawn!

Here are the words to this funny song about eating worms -

Nobody likes me, everybody hates me,
Guess I'll go eat worms,
Long, thin, slimy ones; Short, fat, juicy ones,
Itsy, bitsy, fuzzy wuzzy worms.

Down goes the first one, down goes the second one,
Oh how they wiggle and squirm. 
Up comes the first one, up comes the second one,
Oh how they wiggle and squirm.

If your lawn has a worm cast problem caused by one or more of the five types of casting earthworms found in UK lawn soils who eat the soil and then place their worm cast on the surface of the lawn in the autumn to spring months causing problems for lawn owners, then there is help at hand in a solution called CastClear - the solution to worm casts in lawns.  It is non-pesticide and safe for turf grasses, children and pets and it deters the worms from coming to the surface.  It does not harm the worms, as it is a nutrient based, unique blend of worm deterrent and soil penetrants containing organic sulphur and amino nitrogen.
