UPDATE: THIS PROGRAMME IS NOW BEING BROADCAST AT 8PM ON SATURDAY 10 APRIL
Look out for club member Clive Gravett on BBC Gardeners' World this Friday (and the next couple of weeks) talking about the history of the mower in the programme's feature on lawn history. Some of the mowers that Clive displays in the Museum of Gardening at the South Downs Heritage Centre will be featured in the show.
If you are in the UK and miss the show it will be available on the BBC iPlayer after the initial transmission.
I prefer to see mowers restored to their original condition apart from the paintwork. I prefer to see the patination marks from use over the years.
This is the second in our repeated polls from 2010: "Do You Prefer To Collect (Or See At Exhibitions) Mowers In Original Or Restored Condition?"
