Hi Logan, yes I agree but she doesn't want to spend the money if it doesn't do the job it's supposed to do.

hi all, does anyone have a petrol leaf vacuum?

my friend has a acre garden and is finding it almost impossible to keep the leaves off the lawn we have seen advertised a petrol leaf vacuum but has its rather expensive would like to know if it does the job. Does it pick the leaves up when it's wet? She uses the ride on mower when the grass is dry but finds if she uses this method when the grass and leaves are wet the mower keeps glogling up. She also has a petrol leaf blower but we are getting no younger so can only do it bit by bit.

all help would be appreciated.

welcome Graham,

i love the thought of a plant going (stagnant). 

I wonder if it is a Callicarpa.

It is a seed pod from Magnolia and I agree with Hostafan NOT grandiflora.

I've just picked up my second lot after seeing it on Gardenersworld, I found mine at a steel fabricators.I found them in the yellow pages they cost me £1.50 a rod. They are great and actually work like Monty showed us.

dont forget you will need 2.5 meters long , 6 mm thick and mild steel.

I'd please
