Autumnal Gardening

Autumnal Gardening

Autumn is finally here and with the turning of the leaves and the cooler/shorter days creeping in its now the time for us to start thinking about the great garden tidy-up, a time to empty pots of worn-out summer bedding, prepare your lawn for winter, trim hedges and rake leaves.

There are lots of gardening tools that will help you make light work of the most arduous jobs.  Here are a few we've chosen for you to make the smaller jobs a bit easier. 

All our gardening tools are selected with the keen gardener in mind. We are pleased to include the highest quality in tools and garden accessories with ranges from Burgeon & Ball who have introduced their Royal Horticultural Society range, possibly the highest accolade in gardening and also Sophie Conran who is an established garden designer with her beautiful gardens locally in Wiltshire at the foothills of the Marlborough Downs.  

Let’s start with the clearing of our forlorn bedding plants make lifting them from their old planters much easier using our fork and trowels. Or, our Burgeon & Ball RHS Meadow towel & fork set which have a uniquely-coloured painted FSC© hardwood handle to complement the British Meadow design, and the trowel head is engraved with the Gertrude Jekyll quote, "The love of gardening is a seed once sown, that never dies."

Make light work of clearing leaves and debris in your borders with our Handheld rake. A shorter version of the traditional garden rake!

Working around your garden is made much easier by carrying your tools in the Stylish Sophie Conran Tool Bag available in grey or classic blue.

And, of course, once the garden is tidy the fun starts all over again with our Spring bulb planting.  A great addition to your garden tool set would be our Wooden Handle Scoop once your pots are clear make light work with adding new compost from the bag into your planters with one of these.

A comfy kneeler whilst arranging and planting your bulbs is a must for comfort and ease and helps avoiding bending over low pots. We stock Kneelo® garden kneelers with deep layer of shock absorbing EVA foam and layers of luxurious cushioning memory foam and also Sophie Conran kneelers in her grey and classic blue stripes to compliment her gardening tool bags and gloves.

Finally, take a look at our collection of Gardening Gloves which are a must for all kinds of work be it digging, clearing out old compost and adding new, or pruning the last of your roses and flowers.

Of course, it goes without saying, any of these tools and aids would make great gifts for all the Gardeners in your life.
