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 opened our garden through the ‘Australia's Open Gardens’ for
10 years. We now open to support a specific charity. 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.

Cordless Hedge Trimmer Review




Worried about electric cords on your hedge trimmer, well Hoselink have come up with the answer.
It’s a Li-ion battery powered trimmer with a 52cm dual action blade and a handle that rotates.
When fully charged it will go for about 35 to 40 minutes.
It comes with a two year warranty and costs $179.00.
I have trialled it on my Jaboticaba trees and the Mock Orange bushes and it did the task quite well.


It is probably not that suitable for my property as we have acreage and some quite big shrubs that need trimming on a regular basis.
I will certainly recommend it for normal sized backyards and courtyards; it’s probably all you will ever need.
An added bonus is that is very quiet, no neighbours to disturb and it's light enough for the girls to use.
