My mum, daughter and myself had to put them outside, we think they absolutely pong, other half thought  someone had trod something in!

They dont grow next year outside so all in all a waste of money, they are not cheap.

Pick axe, iron bar, large secateurs, we have just removed 28 very large conifer s, they will come out with a little effort, the stump killer will only stop it growing, not remove the stump.

I very much agree with everyone else. We have a westwood ride on, which OH uses, i had, until this week, a very old large  flymo hover, it collected the grass at the back, or is it front, the latest hovers are useless because the grass collects right over the motor and blade making it very heavy when collecting the grass. Most times we do it often enough so as not to collect, the flymo or rotary blades chop it fine enough to leave as a mulch.

Hello Ryan, good to see you again and pleased you have been busy.

With regards to an internet site, there is so much to think of and plan, the mail order side of it can be horendous, peolpe could order plants by the thousand, you will  need staff, big premises and so on.

Would it be better to start small, such as asking the local garden centres if they will buy from you, maybe some ebay selling.

You could sell in the local papers, have a stall outside then build up from that.

I wish you all the luck in your new venture,

We didnt bother with chiping it, there was far too much so we popped it on the truck and took it to council re cycling, the stumps are just dug right out.

I am fortunate to have a very strong OH he is used to moving great chunks of Cornish granite around so the stumps were no problem. !

Sun is out now so am off to plant another one.

A grockle is what Devon folk call tourists, emmets in Cornwall.
