Nathan James Dodd attended the Garden Press event on Thursday at the Barbican in London, a great chance for suppliers and manufacturers to meet the gardening press to showcase their existing and new products.
Haddonstone have just announced the launch of the impressive Sir John Soane's Museum collection in London.
The new ornaments will replicate works of art from the Sir John Soane's Museum near Holborn which contains an astonishing collection of historical artefacts.
The new range will feature the stunning Caryatid – a female figure from the museum's facade; an impressive bust of Hercules taken from the famous Farnese full length figure; and the Mouth of Truth mask, an intriguing design that was a RHS Garden Product of the Year Finalist.
There are also remarkable plaques, one of which derives from a celebrated Roman original at the Vatican Museum.
Haddonstone are already internationally famous for their cast stone garden ornaments with many striking classical and contemporary styles. Although the company are recognised as international market leaders with a notable presence in the United States, all their designs are handcrafted in the UK.
Renowned for high quality, durability and attention to detail, their products are particularly valued by designers as they can be used as both architectural and landscape features or as interior decoration.
GardenSite has been retailing stone ornaments pieces for many years and we will be especially interested in the launch of this new collection when it is shown to the public for the first time at next week's Chelsea Flower Show.

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.
