With the light now fading earlier in the evenings, August brings us a final opportunity to enjoy the warmth of the garden – not to mention one last Bank Holiday - before we officially embrace the end of summer. This month we’re harvesting fruits and other vegetables, pruning wisteria, and setting the scene with foldable garden furniture and outdoor accessories in preparation for the seasonal change.
Flowers, herbs, or veg? Whatever you've got your eyes on growing, the lightweight and compact Latchmere Trough will be your perfect companion as you unleash your green fingers. Crafted from spruce and featuring removable liners (the small version has two and the large three) they’re just the ticket for bringing outdoor spaces to life.
Keeping it simple or going big and bold? Either way, you can add a touch of colour, form and texture to your outdoor space with our Cutsdean Planter. Available in three sizes which are designed in their own individual colours - small in Black, medium in Warm Stone and large in Green – they’re made from durable fibre clay. For the ultimate display, pick and mix a selection and pot up with plants that suit your style.
It’s a great time to invest in outdoor furniture that is fully foldable, lightweight, and perfect for navigating unpredictable weather. Our classic French inspired Rive Droite Bistro Set is designed for any sized space, from courtyards to patios and balconies. Available in a wide choice of colours, you can go simple and neutral or bright and bold. It’s a given that these weatherproof wonders are great for a spot of lunch outside, but they also look superb gracing interiors and are brilliantly versatile additions to a conservatory or kitchen.
We all know that growing flowers rich in pollen and nectar is a must, but you can go one step further to help our all-important pollinators, by creating a Bee hotel in your garden. Crafted from Spruce with a non-toxic stain and striking monochrome effect, The Shetland Bee House provides bees with a suitable place to nest and keep warm after a hard day’s work. Designed with a metal loop, it’s ready to hang and should be situated in direct sunlight facing south or southeast, away from any obstructing plants to ensure those hard workers are able to navigate their way home with ease.
