Well here we are again and it's finally FRIDAY!  What a week it's been, hope you've all coped with the hot weather again, mind you we have had some cracking rain showers up here in Carlisle, the odd bit of thunder and lightning too.  So the new little Prince George, finally put in an appearance this week and we all went aaaahhhh (well in my house we did anyway).  Dont they make a lovely little family.  

Right, enough of that, so anyway for today I wasn't sure what to focus on (I think it's the weather finally getting to me) so let me show you again some of my favourite Inside Gifts (they can go outside too)

 This is Baa'bara and she is £44.00

Tyson is always a favourite and he is £44.00

Beautiful Delilah is only £38.00

Ermintrude is also £44.00

And finally Fabian is
£44.00 (he's the little one by the way the other is my Alfie and he is not for sale)

Right so that's your lot for today, hope you enjoyed the catch up.  Have a great weekend, think its gonna be a hotty again so go on get out in the garden but not before you've had a good luck round our website and ordered some great things to make your outside space BRILLIANT.

Here I am, back again with another fab "Product of the Week".  
I highlighted this first one a while back when it was new in but it has proved so popular I thought I would show you it again!  It is our Lavender Growing Kit

The kit comprises of a pretty pot and saucer in raku ware, cracked in the traditional way. There is also a bag of compost, packet of seeds, marker and card with all the information for planting and successfully growing lavender.  It is priced at £9.99 and as you can see from this picture it   comes gift boxed and would make a brilliant present either for someone who is a keen gardener or someone just new to the delights of growing your own plants.  Lavender not only looks and smells lovely but can be used in cookery, for medicinal uses and for fragrance so it really is a versatile plant. You will find further details on our Seeds page.  
Along with this kit we have another, similar growing kit which is our Hot Pepper Growing Kit.  As with the lavender, each kit contains a raku ware pot
and saucer, compost, seeds, marker and information card so you can successfully grow your very own hot peppers.  Again priced at £9.99 this too can be found on our Seeds page.  Did you know that the pepper belongs to a large family which includes the eggplant, the potato and the tomato and was first introduced to Europe at the end of the 15th Century when Christopher Columbus had completed his travels.  Anyway, useless information over with why not treat yourself or a friend to one of our brilliant growing kits, go on give them a go!
