Hi Petula - click on the green tree icon on the toolbar above where you type your post and follow the instructions to upload a photo.  Sometimes it takes a while ... if it doesn't work let us know and we'll try to help

Reclaimed chimney pot

Yes I agree with Fairy and Obelixx. 

Using Nitromors or similar runs the risk of the mix of paint and stripper being absorbed by the terracotta of the chimney pot, and then you'll never get rid of it.

Do you get a monthly email about it?  Can you access it via that?

My only proviso with Lyn's advice would be if it's a standard - if so don't cut it back to two inches from the soil!!!


An idiot who thought he knew best nipped the tops out of some special fuchsia cuttings I was growing for standards - that was nearly 40 years ago and I've still not forgiven him

Plastic boards

Probably cheaper if you can get them second hand or from a skip - otherwise I'd stick to scaffold boards or similar.
