The sun’s out! Time to get back outside!

By the time you read this blog, it’s distinctly possible that the rain will be back – it is British summer after all. However, the Platinum Jubilee celebrations have hopefully reminded us how nice it is to be outside, so we’ve been thinking about ways we can help to make your precious time in the sun even lovelier…

Having a tidy-up?

Well let’s get the worst bit out of the way first – making outdoor spaces inhabitable after a windy, wet Winter and Spring! We’ve got garden waste bags, tarpaulins for collecting the debris of your hedge cutting, garden twine for helping out your windswept plants, and even rubble sacks if your spruce-up is more drastic!

Growing your own?

Many of our customers are farm shops and growers, so if you’re looking to grow and eat some lovely produce of your own, we can help. We sell netting for shade and to keep off the birds, groundcover to keep the weeds out of the way, and all sorts of receptacles for your lovely grub once it’s ready. We also have some products that can be used imaginatively too. Our polypropylene sacks are great for growing potatoes, just like Alan Titchmarsh himself. I’ll be having a go myself at using them for rhubarb this year. Similarly, jiffy foam is an alternative to more expensive garden centre solutions for protecting new and fragile plants from cold and damage, and we sell it by the roll.

Keeping your community happier, cleaner and greener?

If you’re choosing to spend some of your outdoor time working towards the greater good in your area, we can help with that too. We sell gloves and several types of waste bags for litter picks and cleanups. We also currently stock some end-of-line catering products not featured on our website – if you’re having a community event, give us a call and we’ll see if we can help with food containers, tubs and cups.

Or just relaxing….

Ah well, you don’t need our help with this one, but we hope you manage to find time to do it! If you’re planning to sit in a deckchair until September, that’s just fine too. Enjoy the sun!
