Ideas for making your garden unique. Herb gardens can look amazing with some simple metal work or some crafty looking wood burning pyrography. Create a little window ledge herb garden, or make your garden a gnome hotel.

Gardening

 

 

I’ve been busy in the garden over the Easter holidays.  It was lovely to have some sunshine to work in, here’s hoping it will not be our only good weekend for a while!

My borders are now all neatly edged with our latest product, decorative top garden edging.  The easy to install design made short work of my rough edges and being made from rigid plastic which contains a UV stabiliser, it means I don’t have to worry about cleaning and maintenance – a quick hose down every so often and they should look good for a long time.  We have three colours available, black, terracotta and blue grey brick.

 

Spot my little photo bomber in this one, I didn’t even see her until I uploaded the photo – my little cat Freya was enjoying the good weather and my hard work!

We will have other designs available soon – this rope top style is currently in production and will be on our shelves soon so keep checking back.

Don’t forget we have lots of other gardening products available, pop over to our website and have a look in our DIY and gardening section.

Thanks for stopping by, have a great week.

Cabbage Protectors

 

Remember our new cabbage protector guards?  I used them on my cabbages when I planted them earlier in the season and just look at how well they are growing.   Don’t forget our tree guards and fence post protectors too – all new products this year.  Why not pop over to the website and have a look.

Thanks for stopping by.  Have a great week.

Gardening

 

How many of you, like me, spent your bank holiday weekend gardening rather than facing the traffic and crowds to head to the coast?  I spent a few hours weeding, tidying and planting in the sunshine then sat back, enjoyed the sun and viewed my efforts with a cold drink in hand.

I made use of lots of our gardening products, some old favourites and some of our newer products and I have to tell you I’m loving our new tree and cabbage protector mats.  The cabbage plant root protectors go around the base of the plants to protect them from weeds, root fly, slugs and snails.  They are so easy to pop on and are re-usable so after the current season’s crops have been harvested they can be cleaned and stored for the next time.  The tree protectors stop the growth of grass and weeds around the base of trees which means you don’t have to use the strimer around the trunk, just mow around the protector – so much easier!  I’m also hoping to get some metal stamping done for plant/herb labels, I’ve seen a few ideas on Pinterest and Instagram and some of them look great and so easy to make, and again these can be saved and re-used.

We also sell fence caps and finials, hose reels and seed trays.  Why not pop over to our gardening section and have a look at our products.

Here’s hoping the sun is here to stay for a while.  Thanks for stopping by.  Have a great week!
