Too many slug pellets badly applied

by Diane - October 1st, 2014

It happens on several plots on our allotment. The over-generous scattering of slug pellets. It’s madness really. The instructions are there to be read but are rarely followed. In this picture you can see someone has scattered them actually on to the plants and they’re dissolving slowly in the rain. Does this mean they’ll be more absorbed into the plant or washed off into the soil?

Toro 20952 Steel Deck Petrol Recycler Lawn Mower (ADS/Key-Lectric Start) (Ex Demo 2 Hours Use)

Toro 20952 Steel Deck Petrol Recycler Lawn Mower (ADS/Key-Lectric Start) (Ex Demo 2 Hours Use) £409.00
Toro are a premium US brand, known for their innovations in the field of mulching, or recycling grass cuttings to improve the health of a lawn. This high quality steel decked lawnmower, with a 48 centimetre cutting width for mowing on larger lawns, is a great example of why they are who they are. The engine is a Toro OHV with 159cc displacement delivering very high performance and good fuel economy. The start is electric and operated by the simple turn of a key, saving time and energy and improving on starting reliability and the mower has self-propulsion to save time and effort. This model is fitted ADS, an intelligent automatic drive system so you can work at whichever pace you choose. The mower moves at your chosen walking speed, adapting to your pace even on inclines. Apart from making use comfortable and bespoke to your own movement, this means you can tackle more difficult areas or longer patches of grass as slowly as you need to or move faster if you wish to get the job done quicker. The Toro 20952 has a tough steel deck for strength and durability and comes with a number of great features for cutting, convenience and comfort. Three-in-one cutting is offered, with cut and collect – to the time-saving large sized, 60.5 litre grass collector, cut and side-discharge – for mowing longer grass and cut and mulch that can be carried out with or without the bag in place. It is here, when it comes to mulching, that Toro’s pioneering research and development really comes to the fore. First of all you can switch between cut and collect and mulching with the simple pull of a lever, saving time spent removing the grass collector, fetching the mulch plug and putting it in. Secondly, Toro have perfected the mulching process, designing the cutting chamber and the blade to maximise the process, creating optimum air flow to keep the cuttings in the chamber for longer so they can be cut many times before they are dropped in among the grass blades to become natural fertiliser, breaking down, providing nutrients and improving the general health and appearance of the lawn. Cutting height can, of course be adjusted and is 2-point, lever operated with six stages available at 21, 33, 50, 67, 84 and 98 millimetres for maximum flexibility. The deck contains a wash port, so you can attach a hose and sluice out the cutting deck after use. This feature is an important part of maintenance, maximises efficiency, reduces wear or corrosion and keeps performance high. More comfort and convenience are in evidence when you look at the handles, which fold down easily with no fuss making storage and transport very easy. The main handle bar is also fitted with a soft-grip for comfort. A full, two-year warranty comes with this high quality lawn mower.
