Yes it wouldnt be my garden without that and the 4 wooden chairs we bought which are still great just teak oil every year.

Do you leave it in the urn over winter ?

This one is new this year. I left a Fuchaia dark eyes in the urn but it didnt survive last winter. The roots are affected by frost so I think ground is best.

Thats done very well for first year.
I have one, been in the ground a number of years, but has only just begun to flower, but it will be blooming its head off until the frosts !
Love the urn by the way.

i use oil on my patio chairs to denise start of summer then before i put them away for winter, it does make a difference

Yes it does Sanbaz I leave my chairs out all year round.

really, i wasnt sure if to but if yours are ok with oil then i might try this year, save room in my shed

Yes they have been out since 1978 but I never leave them on grass - always on paving need a good scrub every spring then teal oil.
