I wouldn't call it 'hard work'. but they aren't suitable for ground that hasn't already been worked. I use mine mainly for keeping weeds down between rows....even then it leaps around a lot.

Given the loose stones flying around, I think I would be wearing some eye protection.....eyesight is very precious & can be lost in a trice.

Btw, I have a Mantis tiller with a Honda 4 stroke engine.

I'm sure anyone lucky enough to have seen the Victorian Kitchen Garden series on BBC2 in the 1980s, will love this:

The Victorians with their endless source of labour & insatiable thirst for display, used to grow clematis horizontally in circular beds.

This was achieved by laying suitable sticks within a circular border after careful soil preparation, the plants were then planted between these sticks and carefully trained. 

A demonstration is available on the 'Victorian Flower Garden' DVD, with head gardener Harry Dodson.

I have reservations about this being successful with sweet peas.

"Bet they took some roasting".......coming to a supermarket near you, KEF.

Love you garden shots, specially the hellebores.

Btw, 'thassorl' translates 'that's all'....speak leftover from  The Archers messageboards, where I was once part of the fittings.
