Wamber Premium Salt and Pepper Grinders - Set of 2
Wamber Premium Salt and Pepper Grinders - Set of 2
Offered by Wamber Enterprises
Price: £34.99

1.0 out of 5 stars Hmmmm, 5 July 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Reasonable construction but the top is thin plastic not glass. No matter how we tried we could not get these to function properly. They produced only a feeble flow of salt or pepper no matter how we adjusted them. Maybe it was us, maybe it was the grinders but In the end we decided life is too short and bought the Oxo Good Grips grinders instead. A wise decision.


Bionaire BT19-IUK Tower Fan
Bionaire BT19-IUK Tower Fan
Price: £41.21

4.0 out of 5 stars Don't expect a jet of icy cold air from this ..., 5 July 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Don't expect a jet of icy cold air from this, even on the highest setting, but it works well in ventilating and cooling a hot stuffy room. Three speed setting, swivel setting and timer controls plus a remote control. It also looks less obtrusive than the typical room fan.


Gardman 4 Tier Growhouse with Reinforced Cover
Gardman 4 Tier Growhouse with Reinforced Cover
Offered by 9to5 Supplies (VAT receipt supplied)
Price: £23.61

4.0 out of 5 stars OK for overwintering plants, 5 July 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have two of these. You get what you pay for. The structure is a little flimsy but they are not bad for the money. My main concern is the lack of ventilation. I have tried cutting 6 ventilation slots of about 4 x 2" into the material on the sides of the structure and bending the resulting flaps back. This, plus leaving the zips open about 6" at the bottom, did seem to improve airflow and resulted in less mould and mildew on plants, but you need to check the growhouse regularly and adjust the flaps and zips according to the temperature. Although I bought the fleece covers I have not found the need to use these yet. These are not top quality structures but they are a cheap way of overwintering cuttings and smaller plants.


5 X GARDEN WASTE BULK BAG HEAVY DUTY SHOPPING LIFTING BAG 120 LITRE
5 X GARDEN WASTE BULK BAG HEAVY DUTY SHOPPING LIFTING BAG 120 LITRE

5.0 out of 5 stars Useful garden bags, 5 July 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These have had some heavy duty use over the last couple of months and are bearing up well. They are best suited to the results of pruning and weeding rather than regular piles of wet grass cuttings but can cope with the occasional small pile of grass. They are a little smaller than some similar bags on the market, which makes them easier to lug around and easier to lift and empty. The handles and stitching are holding up well so far.
Good value for money.


THINSULATE THERMAL TAP JACKET BEST ON THE MARKET!
THINSULATE THERMAL TAP JACKET BEST ON THE MARKET!
Offered by That's Handy Direct
Price: £8.75

4.0 out of 5 stars They seemed a little small but fitted nicely over the three taps of different sizes, 5 July 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought three of these for external taps in various places. They seemed a little small but fitted nicely over the three taps of different sizes. If you have a length of pipe leading up to the tap you will need to insulate this separately. The Thinsulates are easy to take on and off and protected our taps through the last winter. I have given 4 rather than 5 stars because last winter was a mild one, but I may update this after a harder winter.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent gloves so far, 5 July 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I had previously used Weber's own BBQ gloves, which are very heat resistant, but got tired of trying to poke the lining material back into the fingers of the glove every time I washed them. I've only used the Heat Guardian gloves a couple of times so far but these are at least equal to Weber's gloves in heat resistance, are less bulky, but are easy to pull on and off, allow good grip of BBQ utensils and protect the wrist areas. Haven't had to wash them yet but their knitted / woven structure suggests I won't face the same problem I did with the lining in the Weber gloves. Oh yes, the Heat Guardian gloves are about half the price of Weber's gloves.


Makita BO4556 240 V Palm Sander Plus Clamp
Makita BO4556 240 V Palm Sander Plus Clamp
Price: £46.11

5.0 out of 5 stars Good little sander., 21 Mar. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A good little sander. Easy to hold with relatively little fatigue from vibration. Dust bag seems to work quite well and is easy to empty. Has coped well with the curved and rounded edges of some timber I was preparing and it's square shape means it can reach into corners easily. If it proves to be reliable this would seem to be a good buy.

1.0 out of 5 stars Think twice before using this product, 21 Mar. 2016
I used this last spring as duckweed had appeared in our pond and was spreading rapidly. Within three weeks it started to kill off most of the duckweed, eventually eradicating about 90% and preventing any further regrowth. However it also killed off all our pond plants including all the oxygenators and also affected some plants in the adjoining bog garden, presumably as the soil sucks water from the pond. Fortunately it did not appear to affect the frogs or newts in the pond. A year later there is no sign of any plants regenerating, but today I noticed the duckweed is back. I would urge you to think carefully before using this product. It might control your duckweed but you might find yourself having to fork out for a load of new pond plants.

Hangerworld 45 cm Coat Clothes Hangers with Non Slip Trouser Bar, Pack of 20, Natural
Offered by Hangerworld
Price: £18.95

5.0 out of 5 stars Decent quality hangers, 30 Jun. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Hangers take a battering in our house. After about eight months use these hangers are still going strong, which is more than I can say for some others I've bought at a similar price. Have not had to glue or tape any of these back together yet, so my initial impression is that they are worth buying. The quality of finish is decent enough for the price.


Rosewood Get off Dog and Cat Repellent Crystals, 600 g
Rosewood Get off Dog and Cat Repellent Crystals, 600 g
Offered by Cambridge Pet Store
Price: £8.08

2.0 out of 5 stars Expensive and ineffective with dogs, 30 Jun. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Expensive for the amount supplied and the area covered. Washes away in the rain and even in dry weather it sinks into the soil quite quickly. My cat seems to stay away from the areas where this product is applied but it has no effect on my dog at all. It will not stop dogs doing long-range pees on your plants, something my dog specialises in.
