Q.I have a lawn with poor soil and don’t feel like replacing it or adding tons of new soil. Is there a way to enrich the soil such
as adding liquid fertiliser in larger quantities or something else. The products available in the garden centres don’t seem to have much effect. Second question: I’d like to plant for next year flowers that I can leave in the soil which grow to between 1 and two metres in height – they will cover a blank wall that is shady, partly in the sun and also in a lot of sun.
