Bosch electric one. Found them very good. Chain sharpening is done with a round file, same file for the last 8 years, no trouble. Mechanic friend uses a Dremel Hobby thing to sharpen his. Not sure how though.

Daft thing, having a blade sharpened at the Hardware place is more expensive than buying a new blade.

Depends on how big ones garden is. The battery Vac best kind lasts about 20 minutes before needing charging. Not a lot of use on our half mile or so of paths. Ditto strimmers.

Well, we stripped the Shredder and the piece which has broken is not the expensive spiral cutter, but a piece which scrapes the base plate and pushes the cuttings out of the machine. £20 as opposed to £81 or £365 plus.

Sent for one and then we shall see if we can fit it all back together.

The leaf blower has a problem with the carb. so if I can find out the make of the blower I may well be able to buy the piece for that too.

Again better than well over £100 for something I use very rarely in Autumn.

In a pot it does not matter about the deep planting and if you do not want them to last then even more so. You can replant them after flowering when you clear the container. Give them a good feed and then you will eventually get flowers on them in the garden.

It would be better if you could manage to split them without damaging any of the roots. Try one pot and rather than pulling the bulbs apart, wash the compost off and let the water separate the roots. If it works for one lot then you can do the others.

They are still both neo-nicitinoides.

New chainsaw arrived yesterday, so next time it stops howling gale and rain I will try it out.

Mechanic visiting tomorrow, may as well get some use out of my second son!

Peat based ones are the worse for Vine weevil grubs.

Be careful with Provado, it still kills bees.

Would burn ours stuff, but I forgot to leave a space for a fire when I did the garden layout. Doh!

Not sure my machinery ability is good at the moment. The leaf blower will not work and I have had to buy a new chain saw as the old one has given up the ghost.
