decking oil or stain

If you like the colour it is oil it, although it will go slightly darker. If you don't like the colour stain it. Personally I prefer to oil it. icon_thumright

Jubaea growth.

For years now I have been banging on regarding slow growth of Jubs below 20C. Well this year I have been able to test that out due to the unseasonal prolonged hot weather! Two new leaves since the high temperatures, not bad considering I only normally get four a year. icon_cheers How are yours doing...

Tatter how did you get the quotes to work they don't do it for me! Do you have to use it differently than before the melt down? Re the car, do you fancy a ride then? They look the mutts nuts, but I seem to remember they are not good on corners. drunken_smilie1

New to tropicals, renovating my garden

Hi Sparrow, may I ask a question if you walk round Winchester, do you see any Washies about? If not I would suggest you plant them out now, then you can kill them off as soon as possible and plant something that will grow in your area. Now I know what you are thinking isn't he a little ray of sunshi...
