    :lol:

    Just tried those £38 for the order £80 n delivery :lol:

    That's the problem, if i order plants there's no guarantee they'll arrive in good nick, if i order anything even remotely heavy i get screwed over on the postage :twisted:

    Aye as TDI said that don't apply to me as i'm in Greece :(

    I'm gonna start looking around every time i go to the beech for driftwood and/or rocks.

    If i soak em and clean em well does it matter that they come from salt water?

    Re:

    Really enjoyed this thread. Glad you have got the bug :thumbup: It's a rewarding hobby.

    Good idea. Living near a beach = very good luck for collecting hardscape!

    Clean them manually so they look nice. wire brush is good for this. Then boil them in water (I boil them for 30 min or so) and it will kill off any nasties that may be in there. Can be tricky with larger pieces, but it is an essential step IMO.
