Anyone else feel like this right now!!  It's been quite a week but finally the weekend is here and hopefully, fingers crossed, the weather is going to be ok.  Which means of course we can all get out there in our gardens or back yards and enjoy ourselves.  So how about this set of 3 Silver Birch Love Heart Containers as you can see they are lined with plastic all ready for you to pop your favourite plants in.  I tried them with polyanthus and you can see they look pretty good. They are priced at £24.99 for the 3 and you 
will find all the measurements for each container on our Garden Accessories page.  They will certainly brighten up a corner of your garden and as they are made from the bark off Silver Birch trees they will blend in beautifully.  So go on why not treat yourselves and order a set today.
And seen as you are hoping to do some gardening why not add a pair of our gloves onto your order.  At only £4.75 they really are worth having.  They are the best gardening gloves I have come across as they fit like a second skin so you can still feel what you are doing.  As for our little survey held the other week, it was a bit disappointing as not many people took part but I think that pink came out on top as the favourite colour.  They are available in small and medium sizes and in pink, blue or yellow.  Alternatively you can also order the landscape
gloves which are a bit more heavy duty.  They are the same price and sizes but come in burgundy, navy or green.  So go on you have no excuse, get your gloves on and get planting.  Enjoy your garden!!

Hey, it's Wednesday!! half way to the weekend.  What a great feeling that is.  Well what have you all been up to this week?  As you can see Alfie has been out and about again, he loves going for walks and playing in the garden as you can see! Talking of gardens, I don't think it will be long before we are all able to get back out there as the weather has been a 
little warmer this week.  A perfect time then to start thinking of things for your garden and if you have any birthdays coming up then don't forget we have some cool gift ideas.  From birdhouses and feeders to lanterns and tea light holders we have something for everyone.  This Welcome Stone for example is only £5.99 and would make a simple yet effective gift that would last forever.  We also have a selection of cast iron 
Bells and Knockers and some great clocks and thermometers.  One of my favourites is this Blue Tit Thermometer Clock which is made from polyresin which means it is weather resistant.  It is also handpainted and is only £19.95.  So go on if you haven't already had a good look round our website, do it now and see what we have to offer.  I'm sure you'll be surprised!!

 Good morning and welcome to this weeks Product of the Week.  Well we have had a few lovely sunny days and it has been great seeing all the birds going about looking for stuff for their nests, so this week I am highlighting our DIY Nest Box Kit.  Priced at £17.99 this is a fantastic gift idea for young and old alike.  Instructions are included and the kit comes with everything you need to build your very own nest box for your garden. It is not suitable for children under 5 years and should be used under supervision from an adult. The kit includes wood glue,  

nails, a small hammer and wooden pieces.  Once made it will make a great home for Blue Tits, Great Tits, Tree Sparrows, House Sparrows and European Pied Flycatchers.  When fully assembled the nest box measures approx. 17cmx21cmx23cm.  When you have finished your nest box the best place to hang it is in a quiet and somewhat sheltered part of your garden, not in direct sunlight and with an obstacle free approach route for the birds.  If you do not nail the bottom you can easily clean out the box in the autumn to make the birdhouse a safe haven for birds seeking protection from severe weather conditions during the winter.  We also have on offer this DIY Paint Nest Box
which is another great idea for children.  The kit includes a wooden nest box complete with paints and brush. Let their imaginations run wild and see what wonderful
decorations they can come up with.This kit is priced at 
£9.99 and can be found on our Best For Birds page.
