Has anyone been to these Nurseries in Charnock Richard ?

A Friend has recommended for quality & price

I googled the reviews & the woman on the checkout is a grumpy sod but good reviews on plants

We used to go to Golden Days and funnily enough they were grumpy there as well.

We have been to Pole Green several times,and mainly the products are good quality and about the same price as other smallish garden centres.
The till ladies aren't the happiest and neither are the ones at Pimbo!

Too early for plants here but I am contemplating buying an electric pole saw today. I am fed up of not being able to cut the highest branches on my trees. Has anyone got one and are the efficient?

Happened to me last year with a Karcher washer I had only used two or three times. In my case it was terminal. I had left it in the garage over Winter and there must have been some water residue in there and it froze and cracked a major part. The new one is stored in the basement this year as far away from an outside wall as possible. We have heat and water sensors in there so it will be fine.

Maureen. My Karcher stopped working after a couple of goes. So I took the nozzle off and ran water through it until it got all the air out. Then it worked fine.

Mac,
When I first came here petrol (gas) was all the rage for washers, mowers, snow blowers, strimmers etc. because they had more power. Now with the improvement in batteries they seem to be taking over. My pressure washer is electric. I use it mainly to clean my deck and patio furniture.

Oh yes, I have a Milwaukee rattle gun to take my wheels off. Better than any compressor rattle gun. Massively powerful, it can take lorry wheels off, and put them back on.

Yes it bloody well can. I have removed a bus wheel, and a class 2 wheel with it.
I know all about torque and the 'realistic' aims, But I have used it. But YOU can't with that atti-beeding well-tude!

Tonker,
I am a 722 mile drive away from the nearest sea so I suppose the answer is a resounding NO.
