Any advice on hand-push lawnmowers?

Posted: 15/04/2013 at 16:33

I have old push lawn mower and it cuts the best,its costs nothing to run and just a bit of oil in spring .It gives that plesent sound to mowing not that high whine of electric.Green as anything for the enviroment cause it out live you.

that's it ,leave Monty alone,the only person responsible for the plant disaster is buyer(the person who buys for the shops from the nursery)stop looking for scapegoats and just accept its a bad start to the year.

That's human beings for you,we permanently destroying our plant then try to put it right!We cant just have what we want and like,and people like that are short -sighted but its much the same for those pave over  the gardens the main reason hedgehogs are going on the endangered list.

saw one bumble,by the way if you have a water butt and the pipe leading into the container is not a close fix or if there is an open space put a little mesh cover across(an old pair of tights chopped)to stop the bees going in and drowning as I found some years ago.I had a few victims of drowned beesand since they are precious this is what i do now.

Nothing will grow - suggestions please!

if you had conifers there the soil will acid and nothing will grow untill you replace the soil,I had that problem.

They do sometimes have the double head,beware of the lily beetle who also loves them.The best ones I have seen have been in Dunscoombe by the donkey santuary.

I think alot of the disapearing wildlife is due to the way we are living our lives.Roof extentions are everywhere as are gravel and bricked over front gardens where no hedgehog can live or birds in the cold sterile surroundings.I like tidy garden but to have one perfect and no wild over patches is a bad thing for wildlife,along with our interferences with the natures chain.

I have holes in my fence where the badger has come to look for food.Holes in the leafs ? are you sure its not those tiny munchers baby snails or those leafcutters.Alot of plants have been affected by the cold wind more than the cold its self.

you cant expect a super store to have its own nursery they dont work like that.They could not possible do this.They have buying power and can have a say in what they want from a producer.
