Hints & Tips
The recent milder weather has made many a reluctant gardener take a turn around his patch to see the first signs of Spring growth.
And there have been a few brave souls who have given the lawn its first trim. But a word of warning. There is still time for frost and snow so just snip the very tops of the grass and no more.
Yes, a quick trim will encourage faster growth of new shoots but take too much off and frost can nip the new growth even before it’s got going.
If you’ve got the old mower out and it looks as if it won’t do you another season, then have a look at these offers for the early-bird gardener.
First is a mower engineered in Germany and new for this year. The Al-Ko 46BA Hand-Propelled 3-in-1 Petrol Lawn Mower is made with smaller gardens in mind and has a 140 cc engine which starts very easily.
It will also mulch the clippings as well as collect them and for longer grass you can discharge them at the rear. There are seven cutting heights, a cutting width of 46 cm and a 65 litre grass box.
It costs £235 and has a two year warranty and free next working day delivery.
This next one, is exclusive to use and comes from a leading Italian manufacturer.
