If setting wooden posts it'll save you a lot of heartache in the long run to add additional treatment where they meet the ground. You can have perfectly good posts which have rotted just there and they are a pain in the rear to remove!

Just to add best to to get a tub bit taller than ground level put in post and fill with wood preservative , leave overnight and then leave to dry. Then brush on bitumen above ground level, should be good for many years.
Forgot to say that's for non pressure treated wood even so if it is do the bitum bit,

Has anyone tweeted this deal to Trumpulstiltskin? He is going to need quite a few for his new wall.
Thanks for all the tips! I’ve got to do a fence post in my garden.

Do I need to wait for a dry forecast

What's that mean !?
BQ very similar deal btw
I've fitted and repaired lots of fence posts over the years and the weak point is the bit that is above the concrete, usually people back fill with soil to hide the concrete and at that point the posts rots where the soil sits up against the post due to the water in the soil. This is the part of the post that needs treating as the bit below ground that sits in the concrete doesn't rot.
Personally I think it's best to put some gravel around the base of the post so that the soil doesn't come in contact with it

Why soo much heat then?
Would this be a suitable product to fill a bucket with? For example in a game with a friend whose feet are first placed in the bucket? I'm asking for a friend.

No you add water to the mix once it’s in the hole, it will go off quick. Light rain won’t make much difference.
If u r in the "trade" or look like you are in the "trade" (go in a big van and appropriate atire) and you can apply for a 10% off card.

Also wickes feature on the "work benefits" sites with 10% off on a giftcard. (i also got a benefits / rewards site thing with 1st rewards car insurance)

I would recommend this stuff as I used it to concrete in 6 fence posts that are standing strong today in a windy part of town (up on a hill). Remember though folks, you need to dig at least 3ft down with your posts, and old postcrete stopping you digging down far enough it not an excuse. Get a sledgehammer or hammer + chisel and extract it

Not a "deal" per se as has been this price for at least 12 months. However if it helps someone to save a bit of money. Good luck with removing old concrete and disposing thereof ..our local tip now charges £4.00 per rubble sack.
Seems like a solid deal
Another way is to buy normal cement add sand and mix with maybe bit of gravel and add accelerator additive that will set it rapidly and will work at low temperature as well. Additive available from Wickes. This bag will not give you enough for a tall post with heavy panels.

I meant cut off the point of post as in the ground it's weaker, it will be sold on a bed of stone!
