Now, with a well-stocked gift shop, their popular Orangery tearoom, and a fantastic reputation as one of Edinburgh’s best-stocked garden centres, New Hopetoun Garden Centre continue to focus on variety, choice and quality.

They have recently taken stock of the new lawn worm cast solution called CastClearCastClear is a NEW organic and unique combination of nutrient materials that have been clearly shown to reduce worm-cast levels on lawns large and small. 

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 worm 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., specialist

It is not the activity of the worms naturally aerating the soil beneath the grass surface, but the detrimental effect of their casts that cause the problems. The soil making up the casts is very slimy as it consists of soil and the natural secretions from the worm’s digestive system. Left on the surface of the lawn, the casts will be smeared across the grass through the actions of mowing and walking on the lawn. lawnspecialist, treatment,company
