Hints & Tips
The Easter period and beyond is probably the busiest of the gardening year.
There’s the lawn to trim – possibly for the first time – flower beds to tidy and vegetable gardens to prepare.
All really important jobs for the good of the garden for the coming Spring and Summer months.
Earlier this week we listed five great deals on mowers for all sizes of lawns, you can read this here. And if you’re considering a ride-on mower for the first time, remember we are the nation’s largest retailer in this department.

But back to the vegetable plots and allotments. Tillers take the backache out of digging, no question.
And second only to scarifiers, we reckon they are the most borrowed piece of garden machinery. So here are two exclusive deals tillers ideal for the allotment of vegetable garden, in stock and available for free delivery the first working day after receiving you order.
First is a solid little machine engineered in Germany.
The Einhell BG-MT 3360-LD Petrol Tiller / Cultivator offers real value for money with its six steel cultivator blades.
And there are also crop protection discs for use when tilling between growing plants when you want to keep the weeds down.
There are six cultivator blades driven by a 163cc engine which is quiet when running and easy to start.
Making it easy and versatile to use are a front transport wheel so you can move it around garden or allotment, and an adjustable brake-skid which adjusts the depth – the standard depth is 23cm.
The wheel tilts up when the tiller is in use.Bottom of Form
The handles of the machine are adjustable and there is a throttle for adjusting the revs according either to the speed at which you want to work or the soil condition.
This great hard-working tiller costs £299.95, a full £200 off the maker’s recommended price and has a two year warranty from Einhell.
A tiller exclusive to us, the Oleo-Mac MH175RK Front-Tine Tiller with Reverse Drive is made by a leading European garden machinery manufacturing company.
It has nine steel tines powered by a 183cc Emak engine and also has a reverse gear.
This is really handy when tilling to the edge of a plot and also if the machine becomes ‘dug in’.
It is belt driven – and that means that the belt will snap if there is a major problem rather than causing expensive damage to the drive mechanism.
It has two tilling widths so you can use it for major site preparation work and also for working between growing plants – crop protection discs are supplied as well.
This has a recommended price of £529 but we are selling it for £399 including free next working delivery.
Plus there is a three-year warranty.
