Rooftop Gardens are Back in Favour

August 19, 2014


Rooftop gardens are back in favour in the UK. There have been hundreds appearing in cities across the country with the majority in London. Converting your roof top to a garden area helps you add more space to your property as well as adding more bio diversity and supplementary food sources for wildlife. By adding plants and garden accessories you can create the ambience for the perfect sit out right there on the roof top with its views and remoteness from noise.

New Plant Support Guide

May 21, 2014


Garden plant supports are growing in popularity and it is no wonder why. As plants grow they are prone to be blown about and to look untidy. The right plant supports correctly used will protect your plants from being blown over and also keep them looking tidy and compact. 

There is a range of different plant supports to accommodate the different plants. All are plastic coated solid steel. To help you decide which plant supports are best suited to your requirements we have created a new plant support guide.

Plant support bows are used widely and are our fastest moving product. They can be used individually or can be linked together to make circles and other shapes (using the hooks in the corners).  Bows can be gently bent to better suit the plants they are supporting. When growing large plants a large bow can be inserted deep into the ground, then slowly drawn out as the plant gets taller.  Our bow plant supports can be used individually or can be linked together to make circles and other shapes (using the hooks in the corners). They come in 5 different sizes and are supplied in packs of 3.

Pot Caddies
Some time ago we were asked by a regular customer to create a pot mover which actually works and looks nice at the same time... We came up with the award winning pot caddy... available in three different sizes, round or square. It has the same advantages of pot feet, ie; keeps the plant pot of the ground but with the added advantage that you can now move the pot around the garden with ease... it’s like a pot with wheels. The pot caddy is black in colours and has a decorative pattern in black plastic coated steel for strength and durability – rust resistant too! The round pot movers have 5 castor wheels for strength which allows them to hold pots up to 40kg heavy! In this section we also have plant stands, decorative and plain, wall mounted single and double pot holders, plant holder trikes and terracotta pot rings in a choice of sizes.

Patio Furniture Covers

Patio furniture covers help protect your outdoor furniture from wear and tear as well as harsh, potentially damaging weather. Intense sunshine can fade and dry the finish of your furniture, causing it to crack or split. Wet weather can cause mildew of certain materials. Patio furniture covers help protect your furnishings from all of this, as well as pets that may enjoy relaxing in your chairs or on table tops.

We weren’t expecting to be talking about snow in the garden just yet…

December 09, 2010


A typical late November and early December in the garden, for me at least, involves wrapping up warmly, donning my wellies and taking a stroll around with a warm cup of coffee, just giving everything a once over. Tidying up, attending to the little things I’ve missed or forgotten about and planning for the year to come – a little escape from Christmas shopping.

Three excellent ways to profit from your own garden

May 22, 2010


Financially

The great thing about keeping and growing your own is that it not only saves you money, it also frees you from the worry of future fluctuating prices!

The cost of our fresh produce has been steadily rising, and just today it was reported that inflation is above it’s target at well over 3% per annum. It looks set that our fruit and veg is to become even more costly.

You can preserve in one way or another any over production, so you can benefit from it all year round.
