After the relative ease of finding a 2005 Parisian Lantern last year, I now find myself in the position of being unable to source one so easily. B&Q no longer stock them, GARDMAN -(the company who make the monstrous item) will not supply me with one via mail order and B&Q say they can't order me one from them as "computer says no" syndrome. Gardman also tell me that the nearest stockist is about 100 miles from me and they are not a mail order company. I have also searched the internets with no success. I refuse to pay £40 from Garden Oasis who do stock them..any ideas anybody. ...maybe I should just use a piece of grey drain pipe like TPE does

Thanks Timegirl your a real life saver. I found the company you mentioned and have placed an order. This is the right one, and I don't think it's short at all. You have saved me 30 pounds, so I owe you a drink!! You guys are always so helpful and I am always grateful for your help.

Well i received the lamp today from the website you mentioned. It is a tiny bit shorter than the last one I received and the glass inside is in rectangular panels, rather than the circular glass used last time. Still it will be fine and daresay easier to remove the glass this time. It is also slightly different in the metal strips round the middle. Still £9.99 can't complain. I'm still not sure which one is more accurate. I will post photos of the difference when I can be bothered. I still have to paint it first and cut all the bits off.
