Hints & Tips
Now is the perfect time of the year to start pruning fruit and ornamental trees.
And if you have a small orchard or shrubbery, time spent now lopping excess growth and branches will pay dividends in the summer with a better show of leaves and flowers and increased fruit yields.
If you’ve ever taken a look at the work of professionals when it comes to pruning, you may well have been amazed and how savage they are in lopping off huge amounts.
So there’s no need to be shy when it comes to pruning.
And for the enthusiastic gardener, now is the time to consider investing in a hard-working specialist tool to tackle taller branches.
In the past, such machines were very costly, but we have managed to find a low cost model powerful enough to deal with all but the largest branches.
The Mitox 266-PP has an overall length of over 2200 mm plus a 25cm chainsaw head so you can deal with tall trees without having to get the ladder out.
It also has a gutsy 25 cc two stroke motor which is easy to start and has a proper crankshaft.
The great thing about this machine is that it weighs just over 6 kg – so it is comfortable to use over long periods.
This Mitox machine costs just £199 including delivery and VAT and is a handy tool for anyone with a larger garden.
And don’t forget it can also be used to keep extra tall hedges in trim later in the year.
With the weather warming up many of you may well be casting a worried eye over the lawns and marvelling at just how quickly the moss has taken hold.
A hugely powerful machine, it is ideal for clearing out the mosses and dead grass the winter has left behind. Treatment with this machine means that when the Spring flush of new growth arrives your lawn will be the envy of all your neighbours.
The price includes VAT and free next working day delivery.
