Hi Shooter

That's very Interesting as we have a WiFi Range Extender used for the cabin at the end of the garden, as your aware this uses the mains power lead as the means to project the signal down the far end, which we then use wifi to connect the TV and the PC to in our cabin.

Do you think this will have an effect on the signal when the mower is near the cabling that runs all the way down the fence, It is in seated conjugate!

Thanks, just applied for that completion, although i have never won anything in my life, worth a go though, thanks.

We was looking at the Robomow 1000, which is abound a £1000, we did look the Husqvarna which was much dearer, and also the Honda,  but in the same respect don't want to end up with rubbish that will need to replaced because it's not fit for the job or dies soon after the warranty is out.

As for the perimeter wire, we was aware of that, which is not a problem, but do you still need to go around the edge with shears to finish off.

Hi to all,

I'm going to bite the bullet and get a robotic lawnmower this year, due to arthritis I'm finding it harder and harder to keep on top of the lawn, although i love the stripes, which are so satisfying they have to go, the lawn is not too large now as we have cut back over the last few years to make it more manageable, will try to find a picture and attach it!!!

Type of things that I'm unsure about is quality, features i.e. weather sensitive, how close to the edge does it get, we also have a dog so need to thing about the doo doo situation, although it's cleaned up as soon as we see it, it could get rather messy if missed.  

So after all that rambling, i wondered if anyone has any experience of this things, we would be looks at the middle of the range, but don't want to skimp on quality, as this will need to last a few years.

Also, the home for the said gadget,  does this live outside in a kennel type of thing, which needs power or will it need to come in to the garage for that?

Any help would be greatly appreciated

Hi, Wondered if anyone had any experience Fiskars StaySharp s I thought I would try a non powered mower ad just use my petrol mower once every few weeks maybe.

If anyone knows what the cut and finish is like and the effort needed, I have a large garden but part of this is to also get some exercise within reason.

Thanks for the suggestions, sent an e-mail to the GW email as given but no reply as yet so not too optimistic and went to the RHS site which you can book tickets but you need to be a member and mine has lapsed.

We are getting tickets for ourselves as well as a gift for someone else so would have been nice to get them in time for his birthday.

I think I will end up re-joining the RHS which we was going to do anyway and get them that way, bit of a poor show by GW to suggest they are available now with their discount codes.

Hi to all, In the this months GW (November) It stats on page 28 that you can order next years "Gardeners World Live 2015" tickets now and get an early bird discount -yipeeee, only problem is how! normally there is a link to the company who manage the sale of the tickets but alas no link.

I'm sure I'm just being a bit thick but some help would be very much appreciated so we can tick this off and get our accommodation booked.  

Here I am complaining again.

Brrrrrrrrr, sounds very chilly there Bill, we have had a very nice day here in Kent (UK) nice and sunny, i would have taken a picture for you but it's a bit to late now as the sun is going down.

Hope it warms up for you soon!

Oh No!!
