Come on marky give us a break we can't recommend anything till we know the weather and soil conditions you are dealing with, so you have to give us a rough idea of where your garden is located.

I have just been on the phone to Tesco and was pleasantly surprised at the response. I was given 2 options, swop the machine (but they have none in stock) so would have to wait possibly months to get a new one, meanwhile machine is blocking the porch. It is too heavy for me to carry to the studio which is where it is supposed to live. The other option is to get a refund.

With both options, I do not have to return with it to the store; they collect and deliver.

I guess because of the recent downturn in their popularity they are trying a bit harder. Sadly the staff in their stores still seem to regard the customer as a lower life form.

Gardeners World Lavender

I notice in 'municipal' planting that they cut their lavender back at the sides to free up the paths, but never into old wood. Keep some green leaves on the cut pieces. I had to do this when I had lavender bordering the pavement. I read (in a Dickens novel I think) that commercial growers replace their plants every 5 or 6 years. Whether this is still true, I don't know

I have just tried to assemble the reduced from £67 to £34 shredder from Tesco. I suspected from the amount of sellotape on the box that it had been returned by another customer. The first 'leg/support' went on fine, the second had a crossed thread so the screw would not go in. I refuse to re-package the whole thing, I will just take it back to them in bags
