Mountfield Manor Compact 36 Cultivator

Mountfield Manor Compact 36 Cultivator was £279.00 now £249.00
Whether you’re looking to prepare an area of virgin ground for seeding, or need to weed and aerate between rows of existing crops, the compact Mountfield Manor 36 will make the job far less arduous and time-consuming. It’s driven by a 100cc Mountfield RSCT four-stroke engine, power from which is delivered to the four 24.5cm-diameter rotors via a belt drive so as to ensure sudden load increases or accidental impact won’t irreparably damage the transmission – a bent crankshaft can’t be easily fixed, whereas a snapped belt can simply be replaced. The Mountfield Manor Compact 36 Cultivator has a narrow 36cm working-width, so it’s ideal for less substantial plots, especially those with awkward corners and tight access ways. It has been fitted with depth skids, so you can set the working-height to a position that’s most effective for the nature of the application; and it features a height-adjustable handlebar for optimum user-comfort, no matter what your stature. There’s also a transport wheel for easy site-to-site movement.

Mountfield 1328H Ride-On Lawnmower

Mountfield 1328H Ride-On Lawnmower £1599.00
If you’re running a larger walk-behind mower that’s just not covering the ground fast enough, this agile little ride-on from British brand Mountfield is the ideal alternative.Under the driver’s seat is a Mountfield 7250 engine; a four-stroke unit that has a high-capacity 414cc cylinder-displacement; and which benefits from Mountfield’s noise-, emission- and fuel-cost-reducing overhead-valve technology. An electric key starter means achieving ignition couldn’t be easier; while a high-volume four-litre fuel-tank will see you complete the jobs without many tiresome, time-consuming interruptions.Supremely flexible-in-use, the Mountfield 1328H Ride-On Lawnmower offers seven preset heights-of-cut and can either mulch clippings, where they’re returned to the lawn surface to rot down*; or bag them in the extra-roomy 170-litre catcher (a ‘bag full’ buzzer will sound when you’re at capacity, thereby avoiding blockages and mess).It combines a narrow 72cm cut with an infinite-increment hydrostatic-drive and a turning-circle of only 140cm so as to make obstacle- and gateway-negotiation a breeze; and it’s fitted with wide-profile pneumatic-tyres that provide gentle, scuff-free traction on delicate surfaces.Unusually for a ride-on mower, this model has been equipped with a headlight for safe low-light mowing.* Mulch-kit optional

Ceramic pot & amaryllis 'Christmas Gift' gift set (Hippeastrum 'Dancing Queen' gift set)

Ceramic pot & amaryllis ‘Christmas Gift’ gift set (Hippeastrum ‘Dancing Queen’ gift set) was £13.99 now £12.99
Gift set includes ceramic pot, compost, a amaryllis bulb and growing instructions. Position: bright but not in full sun Soil: moderately fertile, well-drained soil or in loam-based compost, such as John Innes no2, with additional leaf mould and sharp sand Rate of growth: average Flowering period: September to November Hardiness: frost tender (will need winter protection) Amaryllis make a great gift for a green-fingered friend (or even those that are just starting out). They are easy to grow and this kit includes everything you will need including one bulb, a pot, sufficient compost and full instructions. Hippeastrum ‘Christmas Gift’ has slightly ruffled, creamy white petals with a green-flushed eye, which form sumptuous trumpet-shaped flowers in winter. General care: Before planting make sure the supplied compost is moist but not waterlogged. Place half the compost in the pot and then sit the bulb on top (pointy side up). Fill in with the remaining compost so the upper third of the bulb is exposed. Water sparingly and place in a bright, warm position (indoors). Keep the compost moist but not waterlogged at all times and rotate the pot every so often to keep it growing straight. The stem may need support when the flowers start to bloom. Once flowering has finished cut off the flower stalk 5-10cm above the bulb – don’t cut off the foliage. Water when the surface of the compost is dry and feed regularly with a balanced liquid fertiliser. Usually the best thing to do is keep watering it through the summer and in autumn stop watering and move to a dark, dim spot. This stimulates the drought season of the plant’s native South America. Allow it to dry out for a few months so that the foliage wilts and dies back. In November bring it back in to the light and start watering again. Old foliage should be removed though take care not to cut any new shoots off. In a few weeks a new flower shoot will appear and flower just in time for Christmas.
