Question about McCulloch Garden
The cylinder is likely full of raw fuel mix. Remove the plug and pull the engine through vigorously several times to expel the liquid fuel. Reinstall the plug and attempt start. If it works this time, but reoccurs later, then the carburetor is leaking fuel into the engine. This will require checking the diaphragm and needle control valve in the lower chamber--the diaphragm must be flexible with no holes or cracks, and the needle valve tip must be perfectly formed. Go to: http://www.drystacked.com for a 12 page article on Walbro brand carburetor theory and troubleshooting. This material applies to other carburetor brands as well. Hope this helps!

When in doubt 40:1 is the always safe mix for any 2 stroke, synthetic oils 50+:1 use there recommendations. Always use the same(premium quality) 2 stroke oil to avoid fuel issues.

There is a handle detail near the bottom. I suggest you save this for future reference.
It took me a while to find this, I knew it existed. GL
