BBC Gardeners World

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.

If You Collect Mowers, What's Your Favourite Era?

Over the next few weeks we will rerun some of the polls that we ran on this site over ten years ago. It will be interesting to see if any of the results have changed in the past decade. Each vote will run for around a week.

First up is the same question we started with in 2010: If You Collect Mowers, What's Your Favourite Era?
