BBC Gardeners World star Adam Frost issues two-week warning to viewers

BBC Gardeners’ World presenter Adam Frost has sounded an important alert for dog-owners during the most recent episode of the popular programme.

Especially in the recent hot weather, many pet owners will be letting their beloved canine companions into their gardens to go to the toilet, rather than taking them on long walks in the midday sun. But this can have a dire impact on your grass.

The seasoned gardener cautioned about yellow patches appearing on lawns – and warned it was a two-week process to rectify such issues.

He said: “I thought my lovely dogs that mark the lawn constantly would do their business on the middle bit and maybe I wouldn’t notice… but no, they choose the lovely cut bit all around the edge.”

Adam, 53, shares his life with Isla, a six-year-old Cocker Spaniel, and Mo, a 10-year-old black Labrador.

Dog owners will be pleased to hear that Adam has a very simple solution for this common problem, and all you need is a bit of topsoil and grass seed.

He explained: “All I’m gonna do is rake the surface, mix up a tiny little bit of Top Soil and some seed and then just sow it over the top and water it over with a watering can. At this time of year, a couple of weeks and it will be green again.”

Adam also previously had a guest appearance from his cat, who sauntered into shot as he demonstrated his planting methods.

“Oh hold, hold on, look,” Adam said as put a halt to his demo. “Someone’s rocked up. Hello, young man, your timing, son, is absolutely impeccable.”
