The Forest Log and Tool Store is a handsome garden structure and, now that winter is approaching, a very useful acquisition. Martyn Loach purchased one recently and here he explains how it is assembled.
In truth it doesn’t matter what you call it so long as you understand what it offers, especially when there is a special offer promotional price available, as there is today. When is a sale not a sale? Just give us the cheapest price please!
Mini greenhouses, in all their variations have been very popular over recent years as they are economical, space saving, and provide an entry level product into the greenhouse market. All very important factors to consider for those interested in buying and developing their hobby, as well as those bringing new products to market.
The humble Cold Frame is the starting place for all miniature greenhouses but cold frames have been marginalised over the decades as you have to stoop down to tend them, they contained horticultural, or float glass, which was dangerous, and they were not very big.
Halls changed the market place with the introduction of the MultiGrow 2000. This unit was about 6ft tall, had 4 shelves and consisted of a metal frame with a plastic jacket. Ideally it was placed against a wall. And it was inexpensive.
But it didn’t last forever….. and that was the problem. Great value for money but gardening can be an all consuming hobby so you need products that last. And this is exactly where the Growhouse Patio Garden (4ft x 2ft) comes in. Based on the same principles but it is manufactured out of high quality red cedar wood and comes complete with toughened glass. Add a top opening vent as standard plus shelving and benching and FREE delivery within mainland UK and you have a quality product that anyone would be proud to own. It really looks at home in the garden.
The shelves can also be removed for growing taller plants, like tomatoes, and the shelves are also made out of red cedar. Having double doors means easy access, whilst the wood and glass combination that forms the patio garden creates a superb growing environment.
The Growhouse Patio Garden is available without a back panel, or with a back panel, as an additional option. This extends the flexibility even further. Protection from the cold and from frosts is an important factor but add to that extra protection from the cold winds we have been experiencing so much in spring 2013 that can easily damage young plants.
All in all a great idea, a great product, and a great gift should you know the right person.
This guide by Andy Taylor is all about battery powered lights, a very safe way to decorate your home with festive colour. With low running costs and bright LEDs, batteries may be the smart choice this Christmas.
There's a huge selection of Premier Christmas Lights, and it's no wonder why they are market leaders judging by the variety and innovation that's on offer. This is Andy Taylor's guide to their range of top quality lights and decorations.
In the past Christmas decorations were limited to streamers and fairy lights, but not any more as Robert Hall discovered when reviewing the huge range of novelty Christmas items that are brought to life by LEDs.
Christmas wreaths, swags and garlands might be thought a little old fashioned, but Robert Hall thinks that modern versions of these traditional decorations are a fabulous way to combine tradition with colourful contemporary themes.
