A visit to our beautiful plant collection is also wonderfully relaxing and inspiring. If you know someone who cares about plants and the natural world, you can be sure they’ll love our shortlist of top gardening products. Perfect gifts for garden lovers everywhere.
1. Compostable watering cans
Watering cans that are made from 100% renewable materials and minerals, which means they’re as hard-wearing and versatile as plastic, but much better for the environment. And, even better, they turn to compost when you want to get rid of them.
2. Bumble bee nester
A fully functioning nest for bumble bees that will help to encourage bees in your garden. It provides dry, secure nesting and, while such nesters were traditionally made from straw or wicker, this ceramic construction is a modern interpretation of a centuries-old design.
3. Composting worms
Hungry little tiger worms are fantastic at turning your garden waste and food scraps into compost. They’re extremely efficient little beasties and love nothing more than eating away at organic waste.
4. Guerilla seedbomb kit
Clever seedbombs and grenades that can be used to transform wasteland, derelict areas or even your own garden, turning it into a paradise of beautiful plants and flowers.
