5.0 out of 5 stars Fuchsia saviour, 8 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The fan is located in a greenhouse over wintering a number of Fuchsia plants. The idea is to keep the air moving ( Fan is connected to a timer switch ) and stop the leaves getting too damp and then rotting, while the greenhouse is closed during the high winds and rain. I chose this fan as it takes little electricity.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bought as a crossword solver but is also, 9 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bradford's CSD was a present to help my wife with some crossword posers but has also proved a hit with a Year 6 Granddaughter as an source of new words to try out and use
.
For crossword solvers the lists are very useful as you get only what you require - alternative words. A surprisingly useful feature are the lists e.g. under Snakes 80+ are named, similarly for Hormones and many other items

5.0 out of 5 stars Me wearing gloves to garden?, 20 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I read about these gloves in Which? Gardening and was at the same time suffering from dry hard skin on knuckles the was "peeling & bleeding" Yes I can weed with them and do everything except nip out growing tips on Fuchsias. Why did I not know about these gloves before?

4.0 out of 5 stars It's OK but I am left handed and...., 20 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I delayed purchase after reading reviews regarding line feed problems. It has only had two outings (nothing has grown in the last few weeks of heatwave etc. )
Machine worked satisfactorily edging the lawn though I have not acquired the technique required to leave untouched plants growing near the lawn edge. I will try again when some grass grows.

3.0 out of 5 stars So close to good, 23 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It looks fine but holes to allow fixing and removel would be sensible as there is no noted way to adjust for daylight saving / clocks forward or back

5.0 out of 5 stars Present for my wife, great photos from a very compact camera, 10 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Most important, my wife is really pleased with camera and the results. Photographs are much more likely to get taken with a camera she can carry in her handbag; but more important they are good phographs to keep and share


Felco Folding Saw Model 600

5.0 out of 5 stars A pleasant surprise, 10 Feb 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The first non bow saw I have used for pruning. Why did I wait so long? I have been really impressed with my Felco 600 folding saw.
It cuts well and it took little time to adjust to the "cut on pull"
Less twigs and branches are broken as it is so easy to cut only the offending one
The saw unfolds and folds one handed so is easy to keep in a pocket while moving about in trees or using secateurs

4.0 out of 5 stars Sony MDR-E 818 Headphones, 12 Sep 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The headphones work well, they make gardenning chores easier to complete, the one slight niggle, I could do with the leads to be a couple of inches longer, to reach from a trouser pocket to my ears.

5.0 out of 5 stars Money saver Energenie, 10 Aug 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought the Energenie to save money when DVD is recording & maybe left on over night as the new TV does NOT have an on/off switch.

Energenie works well & it is easy to get the TV back on
