Hi All.   I have a lot of catching up on my Inglenook. As there are some out of place gaps that require filling. I have been searching for Hedging material ie Coco Basket Liner, Wilko had a handy bundle? which would fit the bill, without cutting strips off  a lot of basket size liners, Scatter, and Spray glue. Of course I have studied the net, but, when I locate a supplier the stuff is out of stock or WHY. Would someone please point me in the correct direction to where I could purchase all the stuff I require in one outlet. Of course it would have to be posted to me, as I am still out of action. Best wishes Kevin

Hello Kevin.  Try this supplier. They do everything you need for scenery.  If you search for hedges you are offered blocks of rubberized horsehair. I have used this. You cut it into strips, stick in place, and then spray with adhesive and drop on the foliage of your choice.  They sell foliage and spray adhesive.

Best wishes.

Terry

Hi Terry.  Thank you for your reply. The 6mm hedge looks to be exactly what I require to mask the gap left at the back of the baseboard. Best wishes Kevin

Hi Kevin
I can second WWS.  I get all my grasses from them too.  Service is prompt too.  If you have facebook, check out their page, they usually have an offer for money off.  

Michael

I would take your time Kevin, browse thier site and compile a list of all bits that you might need, that they stock and do a combined order to save on postage. Better to take a couple of days thinking about what you intend to do and what materials you need and THEN place an order, rather than having to keep going back for missed bits and incurring unnecessary postage
Glad your feeling up to koving things forward !  :thumbs

Cheers

Matt

Hi Matt.  Thank you for your reply. Strange that you should say that, I went all through the list and could only find the hedges. I did find a DIY idea which was good value, but, they were out of stock. Typical. Best wishes Kevin

It sounds like you may have strayed into the wrong place Kevin. Google wwscenics.com for their website and you will find their entire range.

I've used them a couple of times and they are very good.

Hi Bill.   I did get WWS. Okay, but I don’t have a very high opinion of their range “price range especially “ I could see a hedge which wasn’t up to my expectations, the bits meant to represent leaves didn’t do much either. I will have to wait until I am completely mobile and model Railway shows are live. Meanwhile I shall play trains. Best wishes Kevin

You could always use cut up green dishwashing scourer pads from the pound shop. 

May not be quite as realistic, but will be easier on the pocket.

Hi Matt and Terry.  Thank you both for your replies. It isn’t anything to do with spending, it is to do going to the shop.I have already said that I wouldn’t expect food shoppers to purchase “Non Essentials “. Best wishes Kevin

Yes Kevin but YOU said you didnt want to ruin your good scissers. . . .so IF you were getting the scourers from Poundland you COULD buy cheap scissers to cut them up with. . . . 
Ok back in me box  :mutley

Cheers

Matt
