The questions covered in the final section were varied and covered the following in order:
I haven’t been able to do end of season renovation yet, is it too late and what can I do now?
I get red thread on my pitch, is it important to get rid of it or can I ignore it?
I struggle to get rid of clover, can you help?

I want to add a new pitch to my square, given that loam is so expensive what’s the minimum depth I can get away with?

Our pitch is next to the river and there’s only about 8 inches of soil., then shale, how can I improve it?
