Your Questions

Does the transformer have to be indoors, or can they be plugged in on an outside plug? Thanks

The plug included is for use indoors only. 

Are the bulbs replaceable

The bulbs are not replaceable.

Can you please clarify on plug usage? Also, what is the weight of the product?

These lights can be plugged in either indoors or outdoors, in an outdoor electric box.

The 10 bulb variant of the ligths weighs 0.936kg and the 20 bulb variant 1.733kg. The weight together with the packaging is 1.08kg and 1.95kg respectively.

Is it possible to string together two sets of these lights running from one plug?

Unfortunately no, it is currently not possible to connect strings of our Festoon lights together.

On the 20m lights, is there just one plug?

Yes, each of these strings comes with just 1 plug. 

Hi, are the light bulbs made of glass or plastic please? How fragile are they? Thanks.

The bulbs are made from plastic and are very durable. We do not have any issues with these bulbs being easily broken.

How long is the strip of 20 lights?

Lighting length: 9.5m Total length: 12.5m

Are the lights dimmable when controlled by LED dimmer switch?

The Festoon Lights are not dimmable. 

Does the plug also have a transformer built as part of it or is it a normal plug. I’m trying to asses if it will fit inside my outside covered plug socket.

Hi, this plug does have a transformer and the depth measures 10cm when plugged in.

Can you tell me if the festoon bulbs can be connected together? For example can two sets of 20 bulbs be connected together?

The Festoon Lights cannot be connected together unfortunately. 

I would like to use the festoon lights outside using a weatherproof socket in a sealed unit but I am not sure if this will work. I cannot understand if I would need to accommodate a separate transformer in the socket box or is the transformer built into the plug. If the plug is also the transformer it might fit the box but this is hard to know unless I can see an image, what does it look like?

The transformer is integrated with the plug, which is a standard size, and will therefore be compatible with an outdoor weatherproof socket. 

Are the light bulbs waterproof? A previous set, (not from garden trading)filled with rainwater, then they didn’t work.

Yes, these lights are waterproof. 

how long is it from the plug to the first light please?

There is 3m between the plug and the first bulb. 

Hi, I would want to leave these outside attached to the fence when not in use - what would I do with the plug while not in use. Is there a cover for it to stop it getting wet? When in use we would open the patio door and plug it into the plug socket on the kitchen . Im also looking at the solar festoons - what is the light like on those compared with these? How many hours do you get in the evening and are they a similar brightness? Thanks!!

The plug needs to be protected from the elements, we do not have a cover for this purpose. The solar lights are naturally a little less bright than the plug in version, as they run off a rechargeable battery. After a sunny day, they'll work for about 6 hours in intermittent mode, longer in flashing mode. 

Hi. These look great - am I correct from reading the Q&As that the plug does not look like the one on the specification leaflet? Also am assuming there is no timer option on these lights, they are on until you switch them off? Thanks

The plug supplied is a standard size plug. These lights do not use a timer and are controlled by a switch. 

Hi how thick is the lead? .. could I put it through the window and would the window still close ? Thank you

The cable on the Festoon Lights is 0.5cm thick. 

Is the plug detachable from the lead?

Yes the plug can be removed. 

As these bulbs are not replaceable how long is the life on them! A lot of money to pay if they don’t last long!

The lifespan is 5000 hours.

After a lot of searching we discovered these lights by Garden Trading which are perfect for our subtle lighting requirements. They provide a ideal background light for sitting out in the evenings.

Delivery was delayed probably due virus outbreak

Look stunning in the garden, Shame the bulbs are not replaceable. Had one faulty bulb, which was replaced with a whole new set

Excellent customer service, I had a problem that was dealt with efficiently and effectively. A faulty item was replaced without me having to send it back, which in itself saved me time and postage.
