Got a buch of catalogues from Thomson and Morgan the other day including one for fruit. They have some weird new varieties which don't tempt me such as the 'first ever pink blueberry' and a Cot 'n' Candy - 2/3 apricot and 1/3 plum . Might interest Big gav if he comes back

HI Luke

I was going to say robot lawnmower then remembered that they already exist and just did  a search and the cheapest seems to start at £900-ish

I agree with artjak that cordless would be good. I have big areas to mow and need an extension cable too.

I am very good  at cleaning my mower after use but it is a pain and tho' I use the tool that came with and a funny little brush thing I bought myself for the fiddly bits it takes  a while - would love to know your solution to alleviating that one.

Sure there are loads more suggestions for folks to make - good luck and maybe one day I will be buying something you have designed and produced!


Does the grass stay green?

Thanks for all yor replies. There seems to be mixed experiences of whether it stays green or not! As obelixx is suggesting and as the train companies assert, it might depend on it being the right/wrong kind of snow!

Sorry - wasn't sure where to ask this! After reading about the guy in Quebec (loads of snow) building his greenhouse  and the our local news this week featuring clips on 50 yrs after the big freeze of 1963 - if the snow was on the ground for 3 months then was the grass still green when the snow went? How did other spring bulbs/plants fare? I can imagine oxygen/insulation might have been OK but what about light? Sorry if this is a dumb question but I'm intrigued!

Yes don't buy from GW - our local greengrocer does a huge bunch for £1.00 ( however can't vouch for quality cos I've not bought them from him ) so do shop around!

All over the country Potato Day takes place soon (if not already)! The Hampshire one is this weekend but they go on all over the country right into March:

Do a search to find one near you!
