Please correct me if I'm wrong...

Woe, woe, and thrice woe.  The world will end on the day Brexit kicks in!  The reality is that in the event no other agreement is reached (highly unlikely despite all the brinkmanship), WTO rules would apply. 

We won't be locked in the UK eating grass.

Fire Lily's comment about those who voted for Brexit is insulting to over half of those who voted.  I know people of all ages and backgrounds who voted for Brexit, just as I know people of all aged and backgrounds who voted to stay.

Any blame for a 'wrong' decision can be laid squarely at UK politicians, particularly those at the top over the past 20 years who have routinely lied to further their own aims.  I believe that in the UK we are in a position where most people have the default position that any politician is less interested in the truth than in further their own aims.

You only have to look at the bull spouted by all sides about what the effect of Brexit would be to see confirmation of that.

At least an indication of the size you are looking for and budget might be helpful.

Laser measurers

Just be very careful if you are going to have an assistant holding the brick.  Even low power lasers can damage the eye very quickly if shone directly into it.

Laser measures need line of sight between the points being measures.  Shrubs will stop the beam and you will get a measurement from the measure to the shrub, not from the measure to the back fence/wall.

Metal Garden Shed

No personal experience but do remember reading about somebody buying a metal shed which turned out to be so flimsy it was impossible to put it together.

An about 10 litre watering can with a folding handle?

Not with a folding top handle, but 10 litre watering cans are available all over the place looking at the results of a search on Dr Google.

I've just looked at the video.  They seem to be claiming green credentials but just look at all the un-necessary packaging it's in.

Probably unlikely, but you should check with your local council that there are no TPOs on the trees before having them removed.

Good morning Learnincurve

never ever dreamt that a lighthearted comment would result in such a bitter tirade. Really believed that this forum was gardeners in general, including those who just wanted a chat, or even a chuckle!

Anyway, enough is enough.  

i would like to thank all those who have offered advice about  my garden and not offered a lecture on equality!

See original post

 I agree Tizzie44.  There are people around who seem determined to take offence at any and every comment no matter how trivial or light hearted it's intended to be.  Nobody was suggesting that a woman is incapable of hard work in the garden, indeed my own grandmother did her own veg garden until she had a stroke in her mid 80's. 

If I suggested to my wife that she should do the heavy digging her reply wouldn't simply be "That's your job", it would be unprintable.

Probably a really long shot, but you could try contacting Beechgrove Garden, or at least check out the website.  http://www.beechgrove.co.uk/contact-us

They have done features on overgrown and unloved gardens in the past.
