"The most successful way to get them out is to use a hand spade and dig at least six inches wider than the bulb and to dig deep enough to get all the roots.
Weed killers can kill crocuses but but with water levels high it would be more resistant to i…"

"Like many gardeners I am not a fan of cherry laurels but if your client wishes to keep them, the best time for pruning to ensure flowers is immediately after the flowers have faded. If your main concern is to have the Laurel as an evergreen screen o…"

Peter sellers replied to Richard's discussion Grass cutting business.
"Richard, To address a few points in your reply to me and to you by others. I'm in agreement with others on the size of mower, a 41cm is too small, if you are asked to quote for a largish lawn and the competition is also asked to quote and they have…"

Chris & Heather McAlpine replied to Craig Flatters's discussion I was hoping to start mowing next week.
"We've mowed a couple here in Warrington but many of our regulars are on clay and are too wet.  They do need cutting but are just too boggy.  Plenty of other work in the gardens though so still very busy."

"£25 should be your minimum for even the smallest of lawns. Don't go down the £10/£15 route, you'll never make any money and you'll regret saying those prices!"

Andrew Watts replied to Richard's discussion Grass cutting business.
"Ditto Dan's comments re getting a 41 as your main mower. Don't it's too small. If you buy that, within a few months you'll either be (a) restricting yourself to very small lawns or (b) looking for a 53cm or 56cm mower as an addition. I started with…"

Dan Frazer Gardening replied to Richard's discussion Grass cutting business.
"Please don't get a 41cm mower if you want to be efficient. A 48 as a minimum, 53 is better (I do lots of tiny lawns with one and it's so easy and quick). "

Richard replied to Richard's discussion Grass cutting business.
"Hi Peter thanks for your advice. I've got my heart set on the hayter pro 41 and have read about the improvements which sound perfect for me so think I'll go down that route, I've looked on eBay and some mowers look great but obviously don't know wha…"
