Here's a blog post for all those green-fingered garden lovers out there.
You may have been aware that this past week has been national gardening week. For those of us lucky enough to have gardens, the last year will have probably made us all appreciate them a lot more. There's plenty of science that tells us about how beneficial gardening can be for our mental health, so whether you're a newbie or an experienced long-timer, here's some treats especially for you.
An Austin Sloan sign is a great way of letting people know that you're out pottering in the garden. There's the simple 'in the garden' sign or you can opt for something a bit more humorous to add some personality.
Emma Bridgewater always has some gorgeous designs that would be just perfect for the gardener in our lives. There's the Potting Shed bits for those who practically live in the garden shed, the Veg Garden range for the allotment dwellers, or the classic floral ranges that everyone can appreciate, because who doesn't love having flowers in their garden?
Hinza bags are often noted for their stylish practicality, but a lesser known handy use for them is either as a garden tidy to keep and carry all of your tools in, or as a planter itself. It's a unique way of displaying your plants but we think it looks really quirky and rather lovely.
These new Gisela Graham mini jugs are perfect for when it's time for a tea break in the garden. Pop some milk in one of these jugs and you've got a perfectly themed set up to match.
Finally, our hands can sometimes be left feeling a little worse for wear after an afternoon of getting dirty. What better way to take care of them than with some glorious English Soap Company soap and hand cream? These are inspired by the Royal Botanical Gardens, Kew so the theme still fits as many of the scents are of some of the most heavenly smelling plants that you can find in the garden.
