Hello

I have been trying to grow a pineapple, I saw recently how to twist off the top peel off the lower leaves until small root tips can be seen and then suspending the end in a jar of water.

This I have done several times only for the top to die off after a few days. Has anybody got any tips please

I ask them to hold the line for thirty seconds or so and then say thank you for holding I have to record and pass all my calls to the police due to abusive calls.

I have never heard a phone put down so quick on so many ocasions

As a retired machinery dealer i would advise Professional Hayter, Honda or Etesia machines they are more expensive but as has already been said you get what you pay for. Also change oil regularly and service annually.
