Thats ok Tropicalwon :D


I Have been up early hoping to put everything back on the decking after treating it yesterday and also hoping to make a start on the other decking area but its frosty out there so im bored now :roll: Ive been looking for more ideas and came across this site.
Are any of you thinking about building a bamboo fence? Worth a look.

Thanks Dee :)

Yes, they are very chunky and heavy pieces. I put the fist one up using a large brass screw and as soon as I put it on the screw head snapped clean off :shock: I had to go and find a heavy duty steel one and doubled up for safety.

Thanks for the heads up on Poundland, Dim icon_thumright. I wouldn't have thought of looking for bulbs there. Picked up some Sparaxis, Oxalis, Gloriosa superba and some metal tent pegs I'll use for securing down some cloches. Saw several people there rummaging for bargain bulbs...reminded me of pick 'n' mix at the sweet shop! :D
