I review these products during tasks I personally carry out within my garden on a regular basis. Using the right product or tool for the job makes the difference of doing it the easy way or the hard way, so I really value a product which can make my life easier.

I am hoping that garden related companies will send me ‘products’ to test and evaluate. However I must stress that I will not be anything but fair and make no promises to these companies other than to tell the truth. Many of the products here are what I have already purchased for my own gardening use and are happy with.

You may ask, what are your qualifications? Well Judy and I have opened our garden through the ‘Australia's Open Gardens’ for the past 10 years, we won Gardening Australia’s 2009 ‘Golden Trowel’, have appeared on the ‘Garden Guru’s and ‘Gardening Australia’ twice and on various other television shows. We give presentations to garden clubs on Sub tropical gardening and open our garden for bus tours. What is more important is that we have learnt from our gardening mistakes.

Garden Sprayer

There are so many garden sprayers on the market that it has become difficult to choose.
For me one of the most important things I look for in a sprayer is, can I get spare parts?
Certainly if you bought a ‘Chinese cheapy’ you would not get spares and would have to throw it away.
My choice is ‘Hozelock’ these are made in the UK and are distributed by Fiskars, so there’s two very reliable brands.

Spares are always available, be it washers or nozzles, I cannot stress the importance of this.
The sprayer pictured is a top of the line model (Viton) which can be used for industrial liquids as well as general garden spraying.
The sprayer pictured has a 10 litre capacity but you can get five and seven litre capacity sprayers.
The sprayer is easy to pump and gives out a good spray, that’s about all you need in a sprayer and as an added bonus it has a two year warranty.
