4 images of gardens in May

Whether you’re personally paying a visit to RHS Chelsea this week, or simply coveting the illustrious gardens you’ve seen on screen, it’s time to celebrate the return of the nation’s favourite flower show. We get so much colour inspiration from nature and never more so than during the month of May, when the pinnacle of garden design makes its annual appearance. Inspired by its breath-taking floral displays? With the help of some key planting tools and innovative accessories, you too can cultivate some beautiful blooms and unlock the horticultural potential of your outdoor space.


Latchmere Raised Planter

Perfect for small gardens where space is at a premium, the Latchmere Raised Planter can house fresh herbs, salad and fruit ready to supplement your culinary creations. Its dipped and stained pine in a dark grey colouring offers a stylish alternative to plain wood or metal planters, whilst the height of the unit also makes it super easy to tend to your plants. Featuring a lower shelf which gives you an area to accommodate grow bags, plant pots and gardening accessories, the Latchmere Planter is an ideal item if you're partial to growing your own produce. Hardy and highly suitable for withstanding outdoor conditions, it will look charming in a courtyard or patio, plus - if you’re looking to extend your planting collection in the same theme - it’s also ideal for pairing with the Latchmere Trough, which comes in two sizes.

Garden Cloche - 39cm

Pesky pests will be thwarted from nibbling on your garden grows under the protection of our wirework Garden Cloche. Available in three sizes to suit a variety of green plots, its two sections slot together to create a domed shape which offers the ultimate defence against unwelcome visitors who might want to tuck into those precious seedlings, vegetables and plants.

Barrington Rose Arch

Featuring tram line detailing on each side – plus regular bar spacing - our towering Barrington Rose Arch will add a bold architectural statement to any garden. This planting tool blooms over time; simply allowing plants and flowers to weave and grow seamlessly will soon make it become the focal point of your garden. Crafted in raw metal, our Rose Arch design develops a naturally rusty finish. It’s best positioned at the start of your garden path, where it will provide a spectacular entranceway to the sanctuary that lies beyond.

Built for longevity, its roomy, classic design is perfect for accommodating all you need to cultivate beds and borders, plus your potting gloves.

Take it into the garden - or further afield - and ensure that all your tools are stored within easy reach. Entertaining outside this summer?
