Hints & Tips
As we thought, several of you are venturing into the shed to give the mower a kick and wonder if it will do another year.
Sales traditionally increase in the Spring but this year with such vigorous growth in the lawns – well for January and February – the country’s gardeners are starting mowing early.
If you’re tempted, chose a dry day, only take a very little growth off and don’t consider mulching yet as you’ll be left with balls of soggy clippings rather than tiny pieces which will rot down.
So if you’re looking for a mew mower, here are ten great deals which will serve as a short list.
