    Three cheers for trees!

    Wooden garden furniture is

    beautiful, natural and stylish

    and at Garden Xtras theres

    a wide range to choose from,

    in teak and hardwood. Whats

    more as part of this excellent

    companys green credentials

    Garden Xtras is committed to

    support the National Forest by

    sponsoring trees.

    The National Forest is a

    bold project. Its a forest in

    the making, transforming

    200 square miles of Englands

    heartland, and already more

    than 7.8 million trees have been

    planted. This means woodland

    cover has increased from 6%

    to 18%, and habitats are being

    created to allow animals, insects

    and plants to flourish.

    By planting trees to

    replenish the wood supplies

    we use, we really know were

    helping the environment,

    says Stephen at Garden Xtras.

    All our wood is FSC approved

    (Forest Stewardship Committee),

    which certifies that the timber

    has come from legal sustainable

    sources so were certainly

    doing our bit to preserve the

    rain forest! And when you buy

    our hardwood garden furniture,

    you can be sure youll be doing

    your bit, too.

    Garden Xtras at Lancing

    Business Park stocks a varied

    range of garden ornaments

    and accessories, too including,

    pots, planters, bird feeders,

    trellises and lots more. In fact,

    if it doesnt grow, but you need

    it in your garden, pop in for a

    browse.

    For more details, call

    Stephen, Bridget or Maxine on

    01903 756565.

    You give them a final glance as youre putting everything back in

    the shed, knowing in the depths of your soul that all this has been

    in vain. Its a dead cert that as soon as youve

    closed the front door your gleaming vehicle

    will be splattered with random dollops

    of seagull poo.

    They know. They watch. They wait.

    Automatic car wash, anyone?

    The first glint of spring sunshine usually

    highlights one stark reality how badly

    the car needs a wash. If yours is covered

    in less-than-witty-messages scrawled with

    a thoughtful persons finger, its time to

    unearth all that cleaning equipment you

    buried in the shed around last October,

    and get cracking. This, of course, is when

    you discover the shortcoming of your

    hosepipe, which now resembles a dead boa

    constrictor. Then, after a fruitless search for all those brushes and

    sponges you store up for car-washing, you remember how they

    were all relegated to the wheelie bin as being too disgusting to

    continue using. You had every intention of replacing them,

    of course. But didnt.

    Lets assume youve sorted out the kit and, gritting your teeth,

    you get started. Its drizzling a bit, but what the heck? You notice

    the gathering seagulls perching on a nearby roof as, covered in suds

    (80% on you, 20% on the car) you battle grimly on.

    The drizzle eases and at last you stand back, contemplating your

    handiwork in some amazement. The seagulls are looking decidedly

    interested now.
