Sorry to hear about your problems John, personally I've had no problems and happily recommend them to other gardeners. I've had mine for a good few years and I garden on stony clay.

Have you tried putting a search on YouTube, there are a number of vids for various models. You may recognise your model?

If the air filter was missing then the spark arrestor may have been removed aswell? You should be able to download a manual if you have the model number, that will confirm, yes or no. I thought it was regulation for spark arrestors to be fitted.

 Not sure how big Tender and True get but this is one of this years crop of Gladiator. I've grown them for a few years now and they never let me down.

First snow of the winter, albeit very brief. Chilling wind on the Downs this morning.

Just ordered 3 Blueberries - need to re-pot?

Hi Pete, when you get your plants from Trehane they will come with a full set of care instructions. I bought 3 plants from them in September, their advice was to keep them in the original pots until the spring. The idea being that they will just ' sulk' if potted on in the ' dormancy' period.

Instead of digging down, why not use raised beds? Much easier than removing tonnes of stone and would give you plenty of soil depth.
