New Plant Support Guide
May 21, 2014
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.

Garden Accessories for Summer
June 24, 2013
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.

Three excellent ways to profit from your own garden
May 22, 2010
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.
