Sometimes these things jump into our baskets Clari  

Gg, is this a long handled brush? Could do with something for my paths/patio that doesn't break my back or my knees.

Evening all

Been to a Hillier's Romsey garden talk today - Get the best from your garden with Pip Bensley.

Was really interesting I came away with seeds compost for later on, I am still holding off on seed sowing too much other bits to do in the garden. I got a new product slug gone woollen pellets which will be interesting to try.

So many nice plants there I am waiting for the Hillier's little mag to be out end of next week for other offers on 9cm perennial plants . Will be popping back sometime to get some pants then. Was too hungry today so went home for lunch

Got home and my QVC order was waiting for me so I tested out the brush on the moss on the back garden path and as the station bins had to be sorted out took the brush up there and tested it in between the brick paving really worth getting like it
