Question about Garden
If the plug is okay then the ignition coil is a common fault these days.
Unless it is loose, which is very rare, it would need to be replaced.
Just make sure the spark plug lead hasn't been damaged or pulled out of the coil first.
You may also disconnect the small wire to the stop switch and tape it up and try the spark.
To try the spark, rest or clip the connected spark plug on a metal part of the motor and pull the start cord while watching for spark at the tip. Careful though, a good system can jump a 1/2" air gap and can give you quite a shock.
You can buy spark testers quite cheaply and they are handy if you plan to do more of this sort of work.
It's rare that the switches are faulty, but if you have spark then it's a faulty switch.
If you replace the coil yourself check the gap between the coil and flywheel first and make it the same with the new one. They need to be very close, but not touching and need to allow for expansion of the parts due to heating up.

first check to make sure the on/off switch isnt shorting out anywhere. try resetting the gap between the flywheel and the igniton module. you can use an index card or manilla envelope to set the gap. if it still doesnt work try replacing the module

In the US hardware stores (DIY stores) or stores that sell car parts. Bring the old one in so that you can match the numbers. Also you will need to set the gap. that is the space that the spark goes across. It should have that number in the manual. I can tell you because we use thousandths of an inch. in the US.
