I have seen several for sale commercially but I do think I might be best off with the one that matches the greenhouse as the price is on a par with the others

I've never had one before, I remembered that the place that sold me the greenhouse also do a matching wooden one too!

Anyone used one of these? I mean a real old barrel as I had a look at one of the resin ones and wasn't impressed!

Any companies people would recommend?

It is competely real, the photographer released several other shots from the sequence (mostly badly focussed or angled but showing the same two animals). The predator was just trying to do what predators do but literally, bit off more than he could chew!

Then I'd go with greater. Jaws as big as the body, whole beastie maybe 3-4" long.

I get a few in the garden every year but I'm not sure if they are greater or lesser. I shall have to ask them to stand side by side so I can check!

Electrics in a Greenhouse

I have armoured cable running down both sides of the garden. One goes to the pond to supply power to the fountain and the other runs down to the new shed. Both above ground, fitted and signed off by a friend who is a part P electrician.
