I'd contact the dealer from whom you bought the blades and ask their advice . They should be aware of the experience of other customers with a similar machine.

I'm with Dove. If there's a risk of stuff dying over the winter, leave it with the nursery, let them take the risk.
I too would buy in Spring.

I'm looking for "peer assessed , double blind trials" but have been unable to find any.
Even the RHS says that good fertilizer might well give the same results.

I know I'm a huge cynic, but I have to say I'm not convinced . I'm not saying it doesn't work, but I'm not convinced, on the evidence I've seen to date that it does work.
RHS research on it has a lot of " should " and " might " and not a lot of "will " and " does "
I seem to remember folk raving about " water retaining granules" a while back .

Chicky, that looks heavenly.
I'm very jealous.

"So that a specific needs based solution can be identified." ( hideous jargon IMHO )
vicki, we don't need a solution" specific needs based" or otherwise.
Obs has pretty much nailed it . Folk don't grow stuff which is going to give them a problem.
No problem = no solution required.

I was so knackered yesterday I ended up in bed at 8.15. Payback is that I've now been awake since 2am.
I've managed to kick the woodburner back into life which is very satisfying.
Hosta hugs for Punkdoc and Mrs P too.
I had the woodchip guys here yesterday and their ex colleague , who moved to Oz with his new wife, is..... coming home!!!!!!!! They moved to Melbourne area with the aim of buying a camper and travelling around until they settle somewhere, but he says " it's just the same as here" so they're moving back.

vicki,, I don't know what you're studying for, but I'd ask for my tuition fees back if that's how you've been taught.
Totally pointless. I just read the questions and decided it was a waste of time.
Does anyone grow "vegetables" indoors in UK?
What useful information do you think you can extrapolate from the answers to those questions?

I thought I'd mention
"Love, lies and records" which was on last night on BBC1
It looks like it's going to be a cracker.

No frost in this part of darkest Devon. Well, not in my garden.

My biggest fear is that I'm so stupid, I'll wipe mine clean in the process and lose everything

I'm a philistine who probably couldn't taste the difference between one garlic variety and other once they're cooked in something.

If I had absolutely nothing more pleasurable to do, then perhaps, yes. However, that situation has never arisen, nor do I expect it to.
Folk find pleasure in all sorts of things.
Lots of folk love spending hours preparing food, lots love shopping. I loathe both.
I love opera , and gardening, but lots of people hate these.
Neither makes us better, or worse people: just different.

"Going to try buying some garlic to plant later - any recommendations? I may not have a choice of course, it's a small garden centre."
In which case, I'd suggest whatever they've got.

Maybe I'm just bone idle, or very lucky, but I've neither oiled, nor sharpened a tool in my life and they've all been / are just fine.
Life's too short.

At 1am this morning I was looking at stuff on you tube about how to do it. It's all a bit of a faff, but it seems it can be done.

" few" is a relative term I suppose.
But I've said it before, What Monty says , and what Monty does are two entirely different things.

Update, frost in town . I've just been to Waitrose and it's very frosty on the grass
