Figs tree and fruit from last year

Hi Lesinni,  here in UK after leaf-fall we remove all figs larger than a small pea,as leaving them will delay or reduce the next seasons crop and can sometimes  give rise to die back. i would get-em-off .

New petrol mower

Hi all, after months of surfing the net and physicaly looking at mowers of different types and asking advise, i have just purchased a Qualcast self propelled petrol  148cc 4 stroke 46cm cut, Briggs and Stratton engine ,single lever height adjustment mower,from Homebase, £199. the price seems very cheap for a self propelled mower but Qualcast seem to be well recommended , so i will use this machine or Kate will,  and report back after our last cut this year  and give anyone who might be looking for a mower by then a full report of if its good or not.

Appalling Customer Service!

Morning all,not a bad morning erein Norfolk, Jim i am one of the first to give companies a chance but now and again this kind of thing happens, the worst part is not having a face standing in front of you while you explain the problem especially in a busy shop as this always gets them moving quicker,  one of the downsides of ord-on-line. One of the best services we have ever ever had is Homebase in Croma, not only that, after searching the web for a mower for months with no success i found they now have in some Qualcast Briggs and Stratton self propelled petrol 4 stroke mowers £199 ,they have  put one to one side for me  im picking one up on Tuesday 10% off for oldens like me, really good staff and they have changed things for me that i got wrong,again good service. (retired dont work there ) put em on the good list garden part is good as well.

Hi Graham scaffolding companies are usually glad to deliver used scaffold boards if its  a decent number for around £ 4 a board, not as good as sleepers but cheaper.
