Secateurs

ps; the ratchet anvil ones are not good on thin green material only good for large woody stuff.

Secateurs

I got some ratchet anvil ones at The Royal Norfolk Show about 2/3 years ago - for about £4.5 i don't use them as my main secateurs, but they have lasted well and can tackle really thick material. Sadly there is no manufacturers name on them.

My by-pass ones are Wilkinson Sword with a rolling handle and were pretty cheap and have lasted years. I just wish these things were a smidgen smaller for women's hands (then they would probably colour them pink)

Dove, lovely thought but it took me days of digging and sifting soil to get rid of it; it took over the whole flower bed.

obelixx, it will be outdoors and made from pressure treated timber; total cost £38 ish plus £5 for galvanised bucket. It will go in fron of the double doors to the garage which is my studio. It will be used for potting, washing pots and seed trays and prepping garden veg so I don't have to take muddy veg into the kitchen.

Your bench arrangement sounds very good; any chance of a photo?

I only know about lashings of lemonade from Enid Blyton books

Looking at the design this a.m. it does look rather like a double bed head with outdoor urinal for someone with long legs. I might have to make some modifications...
