Can you advise me if your helpline page in HW is independent advice or a way of promoting manufacturers' products?

The advice in this helpline is independent. I am not employed nor paid by any of companies mentioned and I am in no way persuaded to write about their products for any other reason than they provide an answer to the question concerned. Many of the replies are drawn from my own experiences - from more than four years of machinery testing for HW and What Kit?, 25 years of reporting for HW and its forerunner GC&HTJ, and even longer working within and alongside the industry. Of course, sometimes I do need to draw from the experience of others; during my research I talk to contractors, grounds staff and professional gardeners and occasionally need to ask for clarification from manufacturers or importers.
