Creosote - Which one and the best technique?

Posted: 04/03/2013 at 19:36

I use the current 'substitute' creosote that I get from our local ironmonger - can't remember the name right now and it's dark out there but will get the name and post back. Love the smell which it still retains. i use a brush but I must be a masochist 'cos it takes ages to do (now on its last legs) hurdle fencing....

I also get random crocuses and snowdrops popping up everywhere. Last summer I found an iris in a bed where I definitely didn't have any irises. I potted it up and its now got loads of leaves - can't wait to see what colour it turns out to be but I didn't know they could spread by seed?

We've not had any rain to count since 13.02.13.I have loads and loads of stuff in pots and watered this afternoon cos everything was feeling a bit dry. This is after the garden being under water for months during winter.  That's why we got a rain gauge basically - because it is so easy to forget about winter drying out!
