You're very kind, Lilly, though I'm a little disappointed it was out of focus a tad on thinks the file size may have been too big.

 Thinking about it, they look quite similar to these 'Dot Com' That I've grown for several years.

Whoops....the first ones were 'Ballerina Blue'.

I grew this SP for the first time this year & can thoroughly recommend it for scent, cut flowers or exhibition.

Thank you David, that is most helpful, at least now, I know where to start looking! 

You're welcome, Meomye.

I've just reread your original message and would confirm that the 'mixture' you refer to is the amount of petrol/air being delivered to the carburettor......the symptoms you refer to would indicate that this 'mixture'  is too rich.

There will be two adjusting screws on the carburettor, one being for adjusting the petrol 'mixture', the other for adjusting the engine's tick-over.....*these screws can be identified by a small spring beneath the screw head.

*The  purpose of these springs is to prevent movement caused by vibration.

Finally, I would say that although this is only a five minute job for a mechanic, if you don't feel comfortable with it, take it to a lawnmower service shop....or bring it to me.

Good luck.

Bit late in the day, but I would just say that most probably your mower needs the carburettor setting up correctly.  

As a favour, I often do the job for friends & neighbours, but I suppose there is a certain amount of skill required to get it running smoothly and therefore better carried out by a lawnmower service shop if you don't feel competent to do it yourself.

The snag is with these tiny engines is that because of vibration, they soon need adjusting again.

Strictly is back!
