Evergreen Complete 4 in 1

I wouldn't put it on if it's going to rain heavy as it can just wash it away,especially if the lawn is well drained.

The instructions can be a little confusing, if the grass is wet when you apply it can stick to the leaves and cause a little burning.

I try to put it on when the soil is somewhat damp and the wind as dried the grass.

For second Early I opt for Kestrel and Charlotte. Kestrel can be treated as a main crop and will produce some quite large tubers,ideal for baking and store very well.  Charlotte will store but tends to lose it's flavour over time.

I have one of the White and Orange make as well, wet leaves are not good and soon clog the fan, and it gets worse as the fan gets worn away.

Altough I have found that smaller leaves,silver birch for example, are not too bad even when wet, and don't try to be too greedy when sucking, if you get a large amount of stuff at one go this is when blocking occurs because you are getting less air in to the machine, which is needed to blow through to the collecting bag.

 Hello again David, due to family health reasons I don't spend a lot of time browsing the site anymore.

It's lovely to see other peoples pictures, there are some wonderful photos on view.

If it's really cheap, you can buy it and work in to the ground, it might still be a bargain.

I would not consider buying something that is not readily available in the UK,if you ever needed a spare part it's nothing but headache.

Two ways of doing it.

I've always done it the first way although the second looks a little easier.
