Sounds like you may have dirt in the carburetor main jet. so the carb will have to be completely stripped and cleaned and also the fuel tank will need to be flushed out as this is the source of dirt in the carb

Hello

Last year i bought two Fritillaria  Imperialis at a garden show, they were both in flower when purchased, I planted them as instructed by the seller this year both bulbs have put out two shoots approx two foot six inches high but neither has flowered.

Has anybody had similar problems or can give advice to make them flower next year.

Thanks

ColinA

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 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.
