stimmers-which-one-to-buy-help

Hi everyone,

Im am 21 year old whos just finished studing Countryside Management and Conservation at University, 

Always been a massive gardener and love to read Gardeners world.

Since finishing university i have been working a some what self employed gardner in some lovly gardens throughout cornwall. 

ive seen the oppunity to make money here and decided that borrowing tools off my grandad is no longer suitable and i need some of my own. 

Now from your eperience do the stimmers that cost under £100 di the job or is it best to invest the money on a big named brand

look forward to you replys and if you have time please check out my page im trying to raise some money for tools as my cars died so saving for a van

    Oh don't go there. Go fund yourself. Start with spelling lessons.

    Don't ask anybody here for a push Jacob. A lot of dodgy knees and backs.

    I think you should buy the best tools you can afford. And buy ones that fit your body size. Nothing worse than struggling with something that is too big/small.

    Smokin, its a scam. He's not after your advice, just your money.

     Either that or university educations have really been dumbed down.

  • Scam

    Do you know we had a gardener in my home Village (Market Rasen) that use to have a trailer on the back of his push bike and got all his tools from the local tip.Also in his spare time he was a ditch digger for the council and always had a scythe and sickle in his trailer

    If it's not a scam then God help us all because if that's the standard of grammar and spelling by someone capable of getting to University - the entire education system needs a serious kick in the nads.image

    Personally I think this bloke is probably not even in the uk. probably nigeria or phillipines.

    As fairygirl says, if that is current university standard, gawd help us.

    I was idling through some internet shopping sites. There is a fake one for mulberry handbags on special. Its hilarious. Its so obviously written by someone with a bad dictionary, translating from ???, but the sad thing is , it pulls some people in.

    Last week I had a letter from someone purporting to be in China, promising me millions if I would let him pay an inheritance through my bank account.  Yeah really, I just give them my bank account details, and all of a sudden it gets drained. Oh and he says I should keep it secret. The shame is I don't  have a bank account in that name anymore, and havn't since I got divorced 18 years ago.
