    Mine has finally packed up, had it years but it has finally given in today. Anyone got one they could recommend?

    Also I need some new water butts am trying to harvest as much rainwater as possible. Got two tanks and they are overflowing right now already.

    Petrol or electric?

    I have four massive water harvesters which are pretty good but they don’t have a make on them I’m afraid and I inherited them, blue plastic and stainless steel locking collars.

    Not sure why a water harvester needs to be petrol or electric. If the are above ground you dont need a motor to power the water out.

    I wouldn't bother with a strimmer, it's a waste of your life

    Next you'll be buying a "lawn edger"

    Go and do something more fun mate!



    I would like a water butt to collect water for plants... but they cost money, the government should give them out free

    The are recycle websites with stuff like that.

    I have filled one up half with sand and soil to grow carrots.

    Just use a pair of shears on the edges. A lot less faff than plugging something in and having to unspool it every couple of minutes.

    Connect the water tank to the roof drainage? You ‘harvest’ that much more water. Better for the carrots than chlorinated tap water.
