Buyers guide to... Small gardens


Small gardens

Whether you have a small patio, decking, a roof-top garden or a balcony, you can still create your own mini haven to be proud of. We've got plenty of space saver ideas for a lush, productive space - even if you only have a shady garden path to contend with!

Attract the wildlife in to your garden

Every garden has bees and bugs and with our bee and bug house you can provide a shelter and home for them in your own garden. A fantastic way for children and adults to learn more about the wildlife that lives in their back garden or a great gift for budding gardeners who want to attract ladybirds and lacewings to help keep their plants healthy and whole. You’ll also get a packet of wildflower seeds to help attract lots of bees and insects to this buzzing bug hotel. It’s a bug’s life!

Fun Plant Pots

Not sure on what sort of plant to buy someone, well why not purchase one of our colourful, fun metal planters. These simply designed pots will make plants stand out and look great in any garden. If you’re short of space or not lucky enough to have a garden these pots are ideal for doorsteps or windowsills inside and out and with their wooden handles they’re great to pick up and pop down somewhere new. Choose from two sizes small and medium and an array of bold colours including red, green, purple, cream and turquoise. At under £10, it’s an idea gift for anyone that wants to liven there plants up or can be used as great little storage pots.

Outdoor veg table 90 litres

This veg table is the smallest in our range but don’t let that put you off! It is still large enough to grow your own salads and vegetables, but is small enough to tuck into an unused corner. This is also the size we recommend for balconies as they get rather heavy when filled with planting material and water.

Small square foot garden

Perfect for small gardens, patios and roof terraces, this square foot garden is the smallest in the range being just two foot square with four individual planting beds. Container gardening is ideal for growing vegetables in a small space, as a first garden for young children, or fitting in a flower garden in a small area such as a balcony.

Utilise every space and grow along the walls

Climbing plants are a great way to make the most of a wall space in the garden. Climbing hydrangeas stay flowering for a long time, which will make your small garden come to life.

Indoor plants for those without a garden

Our range of indoor plants will allow you to grow something a little more tropical in your own home! The Coffea Arabica plant is a great gift for plant and garden lovers. The Bird of Paradise is the personification of an exotic with its fabulous bird-like orange and blue flowers that are held well above the bold paddle like foliage. Great in a conservatory or as a spot plant in a tropical border or terrace in the summer months.
