Most of us are in the UK - I'm sorry but I do not recognise the product in your photograph - I suggest you ask the person you bought it from for its ingredients and how to use it.

Good luck

Morning all.
Dove how did you put those photos on here? The photo window doesn't have external photos any more. Or did you put them in your own photo files first?

See original post

 Just doing what I've always done BL - I have a file for GW photos - I save them on there first. 

I'll leave him there for the moment - maybe someone will claim him - I'm heading for the shower ........... see ya in a bit

Your trees aren't big enough to produce seeds, but an ash tree somewhere near you is doing so.  Learn to recognise the seedlings as they pop up and pull them out when they're just a few inches tall.  We have large ash trees at the end of our garden and we just pull and hoe the seedlings each year and don't let them become a nuisance.

I bought berry tine croecote substitute last year to put on all wood work around house , have rather a lot including decking which had 2 coats, it looked really good everywhere but a year later there is hardly any left on it as has gone back to the colour it was before I did all that hard work, it was expensive and a total waste of time so didn't even really last a year, am never using that again what a con and waste of money. The EU keep stopping everything that actually works , I'm sick of them! I really have not got the time to be doing woodwork every year and is costly, they probably made this rule so we all had to spend more money and work ten times harder! (Same with Henry hovers they only allowed a slower engine now because Poxy EU regulations ) I bet they have gardeners cleaners etc so they don't have to do jobs them selves :( fed up that I now again this year will have to do it all again another 2 weeks of my time ! I don't want to use anything that flakes off I want something like the old original creosote that lasted around ten hrs before re doing it all.. My advise I'd DO NOT BUY THE SUBSTITUTE BARRESTINE CREOCOTE AS IT IS A WAY BELOW and very poor STANDARD SUBSTITUTE! So unless you are prepared to apend all that money and redo it every year do not buy! 

See original post

 Creosote has been banned in Australia on health grounds for years and years ...  that'll be because of the EU then will it ? 

And as for working ten times harder -  if we go for Brexit and the British Workers lose the protection of the EU Working Time Directive you'll see who actually wants us to work even harder
