    Amongst other things I will have to treat with new fencing going up will be the cut ends of featheredge boards.

    What do I use to treat the cut sections?

    I have heard of end-grain treatment but can anyone point me in the right direction please?

    The fencing will be coated afterwards but I want to make sure it lasts as long as possible.

    Thanks.

    You can get an end grain treatment from the likes of B&Q and screwfix. I think they both sell Ronseal which I have used and seems to be fine. Don't be surprised when it looks blue on application: it soon fades to match other pressure treated timber.
