      Ok question 2 (and probably more in keeping with you gardening types)


      The thing in the bottom left corner of the original picture (google suggests it might be a Photinia) as you can see, is very close to palm tree.
      There is nothing underneath the visible foliage, just bare, thick branches.
      I'm assuming it's being 'strangled' by the palm, as the bigger the tree has got the more minging the shrub has become.

      Now that neighbour Ted has saved the palm tree:-


      Can I dig out the 10 year old (possibly) Potinia and replant it across the garden 6 feet away from a Ceanothus?

      If so what will the new home hole need to stimulate growth.


      Ta muchly.

      It is indeed a Photinia. They do go a bit bare bottomed if they're not regularly trimmed to promote bushy growth. You could either give it a good trim and hope for the best, or dig it out and buy a new one. I would definitely cut it down to about 1m, and see what it does. As us horticulturalists say, "It's got two chances!"
      You could transplant it, keeping as much soil on the roots as possible, incorporating some organic matter in to the planting hole, and water it morning noon and night as it's the wrong end of the transplanting season, but personally I wouldn't bother.
      Let us know what you do.

      A serious hair cut it is then.

      Thanks.

      My lawnmower worked fine yesterday but won’t start today. It is full of the right (unleaded) petrol.

      1. What is the most likely cause?

      2. Will a repairman come and collect it / fix it at the moment?

      Ride on, self propelled or push?
      Is it firing when you try to start it?
      Is it turned on?(may sound obvious, but switch sometimes doesn't engage)
      Answer these, then we might be able to diagnose further

      Self-propelled/pedestrian - old Hayter.

      It was working yesterday and I cut most of my grass.
      It stopped and I thought it was very low on petrol.
      I refilled the petrol tank with unleaded purchased this week.
      It then wouldn't restart.
      Yesterday when not starting it was firing up with a really healthy sound but not kicking in to continue.
      Today it is just dead and not even doing that.

      When I've encountered what you've described, it's been a plug issue or the plug lead. However, I've had an issue in the past with low oil level. Of course I'm speculating and it might be a stuck jet or float needle so I'm not being very helpful, am I

      TBF short of actually coming round and fixing it not much will help.
