Don't know anything about makes, sorry. I picked mine up as a job lot of tools in an auction. It's got a long handle which I like as I can stand on my log in the centre of the big bed and do most of it from there.

I don't have a dog at the moment  as I'm not sure I could handle the committment. Maybe in the future, I like labs and German Shepherds too........ well I like all dogs

My cats will drink dirty rain water outside but inside they like theirs served cold in a pint glass!

I've not long sown my first night scented stock Hefty, going to try and do repeat sowings so the fragrance lasts longer. OH has got a living wall idea going on near the back door might try and get some to take there just so it's easy to smell them

Had lots of success with fresh seed sown direct last year
