We’ve had some beautiful sunny days this week - it’s such a shame not to be outside when the weather gets so nice and it’s the perfect time to invest in some decorative touches for your garden. However, we’ve admittedly had a few horrors in between, so we think it’s just as good a time to revamp your home for Spring and Summer, in case you have to take shelter a little longer!
At Garden Trading, as a rule, we don’t really “do” decorative. We like our products to take a useful space in your home, rather than adding to the clutter of daily life. However, we do “do” good design, so why not take a look through our website and see what useful touches you can add to your home and garden?
Perfect for sunny weather, our stylish new planters are the perfect way to introduce colour to your garden, and provide the perfect excuse to bring in plants that don’t do well in your soil. For those who lack the space for larger planters, our Aldsworth Pot Ladder is a great way to display smaller pots, and is ideal for indoor or outdoor use. Some of our planters can even be used as drinks holders; why not fill a Bibury Planter or Charlbury Bowl with ice, perfect for chilled wine, beer or cordial in the sunshine!
We’ve also brought in some beautiful new votives and even a new scented candle. Our wonderfully simple Lulworth Votives are available in three sizes and perfect for adding soft lighting to evenings that are slowly trying to get warmer. Add a pop of colour by lighting up a candle in our new Cornbury Coloured Votive in Blue, or our popular Miners Lantern, now available in our warm Dorset Blue. Whatever the weather, let a summery scent take over with our lovely Bergamot Candle. Presented in a handsome Dorset Blue enamel pot, it is sure to win you over.
If there was ever a great way to bring summer inside on a rainy day, it’s with a big jar of flowers! Whether you’re a fan of our versatile Powder-Coated Steel Range, prefer our fresh looking Recycled Glass Vases, or think our new Broadwell Bottles suit your flowers best, we have something for all sizes and styles of bouquet. You can’t guarantee the weather, but you can make sure it doesn’t put a damper on your decorating!
