There seem to be two types. The Bosch above has a spinning blade to chop/slice the branches etc, therefore its best used on dry/brown stuff otherwise it will clog up. The other type crushes them, and is perhaps better for moist/green stuff.

I store freshly cut stems etc to dry them out before putting them through the Bosch.

Lyn, thats the one I have, bought it in 2008 and its great.

I sometimes have to open it up to clean debris around the blade, especially if some green stuff has passed through it as it can clog it up. Stick to dry brown stuff and its fab.

Sadly i didn't get chance to visit Barnsdale today, I ran out of time and had to be back home to do the school run. But I will be visiting one day this summer.

I drew mine out to scale first, then transferred the info to the software.

I used free trial period of smallblueprinter.com on my laptop to design my new garden layout. Download the free trial software only when you know you have sufficient time to sit down and use it, so you can complete the design before the free trial ends.

Thanks, I guess I may as well go take a look whilst I'm in the area, think its currently only £6 entrance fee to I can always go again in the summer. And I may have some of the garden to myself if its quiet.

Those photos look excellent David. Looks like you were there in the summer, would the gardens still be worth seeing at this time of year, would there be much to see?

Im in the area of Barnsdale later this week and was going to go take a look. Is it worth seeing at this time of year?
