anyone know what connector I need (they seem to make 'em for up to 19mm flexible hoses - has anyone ever got one of those to fit ?)
hozelock female socket onto 20mm blue "mains" pipe?
Im sure wilkinsons do a multipack of connectors in various sizes - cheap as chips, I seemnto be able to get most hoses to fit
Unless yours is really not normal - I am no hose expert!
it's not a garden hose FW, it's a short length of rigid "PVC" pipe that runs into the garden from an outside tap whose connectors have all broken off
google "hydrasun", if there is one nearby visit it and tell them what you need, in my experience they can attach almost any pipe to any other pipe...
easy solution is fit a tap to the blue pipe - a compression fit tap mount is common for the blue rigid pipe
then fit your hozelock connector to the tap
t_r, the blue pipe is the outward bit running from the tap - weird I know but it is sunk under a path so I guess a bit of robustness is good
(no hydrasun within about 300 miles )
You could try Travis Perkins as they do (or used to) Alkathene fittings or Tool-station do a MDPE with loads of fittings so you should be able to find one to suit your needs
Could this be what you're after?
Give LBS a call and explain what you need

Thanks all - I've ordered a 19mm attachment to see if I can force it on. If not, there seem to be reducer ferruley things that may work
you need one of these: http://www.toolstation.com/shop/Plumbing/MDPE/MDPE+Male+Adaptor+20mm+x+12/d20/sd2729/p13167
or you can use the brass 3/4" hose connector and a 1/2" to 3/4" adapter http://www.toolstation.com/shop/Plumbing/Compression/Brass+Hexagon+Bush+34+x+12/d20/sd2697/p98490
What he said^^
compression to male threaded section, then buy a standard tap hose adapter from B&Q, which are either 1/2" or 3/4" BSP threaded.
I could spend so much money at T-Mex, fortunately I get to play about with their stuff at work
