Question about Garden
Sounds like it may have hydraulic lock--the upper cylinder is full of fuel. Remove the spark plug and pull the engine through a number of times. Make sure the ignition switch is off--it might ignite the expelled fuel. You may find that the crankcase is also full of fuel--continue to pull the starter until there is no raw fuel expelled. Now, why didn't it fire! Probable bad ignition system--check for firing of a clean spark plug (ignition on). If ok, try the original plug, it may need to be cleaned or replaced.

I bought a new chainsaw and it wouldnt start because of the above problem. I took out the spark plug and wiped away the fuel around its thread and tip. With the switch in the off position I pulled it through with my thumb mostly over the spark plug housing. I wiped away the excess fuel from my thumb and continued as above until my thumb was dry. Placed the spark plug back and it started first time!
