You pick up the lanscaping fabric from any b&q/homebase but they usually charge over the odds for it, i tend to buy it from b&m bargains/homebargains/poundstetcher/wilkos etc when i happen to go bargain hunting.  Probably not he best time of year to get hold of it though. 

You can also get it online for a fraction of the price, ebay would be a good place to start.

Sweet Pea seedlings

I started mine a couple of weeks ago and mine are growing way to fast as well, no where near that level.  Mine are now in a shady/cool place and in root trainers.

I am not sure what to suggest on yours though.

Looking for Something Different

Foxgloves (got about 5 types as well as plants already started this year) are very easy and nice plants, others i will be trying from seed will be antirrhinum, various lobelia, larkspur. i also did some very late dahlias from seed which where a mixed type and i was very impressed with vast array or different plants, so will probably try another seed mix of those.

Oh and cornflowers, had some of these in a wildflower mix, so will grow these by themselves next year.

Lawnmower Design and Use

Posted: 16/10/2013 at 13:27

Size of lawn doesnt justify a large mover and generally i think the wheeled type are larger,certainly for storage, the flymo weighs absolutely nothing to me, but that might not be the case for those older.

Lawnmower Design and Use

I only have a very small lawn soprobably not the best feedback but here it is anyway.

How do you prefer to cut your lawn...?    as little as possible?  too small to warrant stripes etc

What mower do you use....?     flymo hover

What do you do with the grass cuttings (compost, bin, etc)?  compost

How and where do you store your mower.....?   shed

How often do you cut your lawn....?  weekly unless being lazy

Any thing that fustrates you about current lawnmowers/anything you would change...?     cuttings box is very small, even on tiny lawn requires empying twice

Hope this helps.

Glad you decided to put the blog on a dedicated blogging site, it so much easier to read/navigate/digest and actually displays properly on apple devices.

Favourited the page so will keep an eye on it.
