Oh cheers chaps!   Exactly what I'm looking for.

The one from from Amazon is even better (best of both worlds) and I have an account with them...I'll get ordering!

Many thanks again.

No, it isn't one of those wind ups!    I wonder if anyone knows where I can buy one of these....I know they are manufactured but can't seem to be able to track down a supplier.

Although I'm right handed, I find when I'm measuring from right to left  (especially in  tight corners) very difficult as the numbers are upside down.

Also at the risk of incurring the wrath of the moderators..... I would say that (being a keen DIYer, as well as a gardener) I always buy Bosch tools whenever possible. Quality engineering, design and manufacture is guaranteed.

What's the weather like in your area?

At times like this I'm glad I live on a hill. After a night of torrential rain it’s now a beautiful sunny morning here in the Midlands....the quiet before the storm unfortunately, heavy rain is forecast again by late afternoon.

Commiserations to all who are not so lucky and who are suffering flood damage.

A north facing wall is ideal for a morello cherry trained, it would look great.

Chicken pelleted manure is an excellent lawn feed....that is in the spring & summer, not autumn.

Morning, Bjay.....I responded to your SP query, not sure if you read it.

Geoff, I'm not a fan of MD and I think this is a far too friendly thread to debate the reason why....suffice to say, I just don't think he's got what it takes.

Pottiejam, I think the sainted Geoff was everyone's favourite. Of course (as you probably know) Barnsdale is still very much alive & well, (as you say) being run by his son.

Just in-case you haven't had the pleasure of visiting, here are a few pics taken during my last visit:

 “ An interesting snippet from Horticulture Week this morning: "BBC emailed me (Matthew Appleby, a journalist at HW) to say Monty Don was “on the verge of a new contract”, rather than having signed one. Monty’s been tweeting about BBC management, gunning for BBC management changes." Sounds interesting/dangerous. Hope another catastrophic Beeb scandal is not in the brewing. “


I suppose it wouldn’t be the first time some smalltime ‘celeb’ had ideas above their station!
