    No, I haven't. It has been burnt inside, and the burnt pieces of wood flake off easily. Hadn't thought about giving it a scrub, was just thinking about exposure to the elements. To be honest it's been on the back burner recently. Haven't even got a site yet!

        Update on the planter.
        [​IMG]

        The pygmy water lily Helvola has flowered, I'd given up on it but today it opened and there may even be another one coming.:smile:
        The Water Chestnut and Water Soldier plants aren't doing so well maybe the planter gets too warm being so small, although it probably helps the blanket weed.:frown:

              Water looks remarkably clear for a small pot, well done you.

                What are your plans for a pond/pool when it come time to upgrade....staying small or going large.
