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.

Best Garden Sprayer


They say there’s nothing new under the sun, well Hozelock have proved otherwise.
They have successfully reinvented the humble garden sprayer.
Wow, and have they done it well.
I have the 5 litre Killaspray Plus and am very happy with its ease of use and its innovations.

They do make an 8 litre one also.
It has an extra wide foot to stop it from falling over.
Has a last use indicator cap.
A dosing cup that is part of the unit which allows you to correctly measure out your chemicals.

Easy storage of the lance and a good strong shoulder strap.
Probably best of all is that it takes the liquid from the bottom not like all the others that have a tube going down the centre, so you are able to use the sprayer until it is 100% completely empty.

As usual with Hozelock spare parts are readily available and the quality is of course very good.
You just cannot buy a better garden sprayer.
If you want one, just go to Bunnings, they have the full range. 
They also make a great hose wand, made out of stainless steel and plastic, feels so good to use. 
When you have it in your hand you know its a good product.

    Not only are you a Fiskars fan, you're a Hozelock fan too.
