    Dovefromabove , go for it 

    You will find it useful for all sorts of things , we had a little party in the Garden and put up lights , have a double socket fitted 

    We use to have a George Foreman grill , electric and I would use that instead of a barbecue , a lot less fuss and cleanerimage

    I too Dove would def ask about the outside socket, will be great for all sorts all year round image

  • Lovely trees Jack. Hope my little rooted tree I bought this year grows ok once planted out after xmas.

    Go for it Dove, I've wanted a socket in the garden for a while, want a water feature as well as lights. Have solar lights at the mo.

    We haven't got an outside socket and wanted a quick fix as solar lights don't do much at this time of year.

    Those lights in my outside tree are outdoor, battery timer ones, about six quid from wilkos. You put three AA batteries in and switch them on, they stay on for six hours then go out until the same time the next day.

    So I put them on at four and they go out at ten and come back on at four every day. I thought they wouldn't last long but so far they haven't got any dimmer and they've been up for two weeks. Once they get dim or go out I'll just charge up the AA's and put them back in.

    So they are not bad for a quick fix if you want nice lights for Christmas.

    Star gazer lily, we got that one in a pot from the garden centre last year, I put it in the ground a few days after new years and it has done well, it has had new growth on it.

  • Will have a look in Wilkos when I pop to town on Friday. Those lights sound great Jack. Hope my trees grows as well as yours Jack image
