This week Robert Hall has been to the Glee Garden Trade show at the NEC in Birmingham and has reviewed the new Lotus Wheelie Bin Store; Metal Garages, Bicycle Store; Sheds and Workshops and more...
Forest have been making high quality timber garden products for over half a century and at GLEE David Coton had the chance to see their brand new storage range that has recently been launched.
Garden Stores already vary widely in style and size, and Forest, who use local sustainably sourced timber and manufacture in their own sawmills, have now announced a new range to complement these existing products.
Compact stores for bikes and miscellaneous garden equipment are already available from Forest, and there are also wheelie bin stores and even a version designed specifically for boots and wellingtons.
Additional outdoor storage always comes in handy and they have now launched this innovative new outdoor range that offers something for everyone who doesn't need or can accommodate a full sized shed.
Available with shiplap or overlap cladding and with an apex or pent roof, the choice ranges from a compact storage box to larger outdoor units. All are pressure treated and carry a 15 year anti rot guarantee.
With great specifications, Forest have ensured that each store has an attractive appearance to go with their practical design, and they will certainly enhance any garden or outside space.
They are all designed with ease of use in mind and helpful features such as a pent roof being able to be assembled sloping forwards or backwards as necessary.
For whatever storage is required, and this could be anything from tools to seat cushions, lawn mowers to barbecues, Forest now offer a store facility for all your needs.
David Coton was recently invited to the exclusive launch of Grange's new products for 2018, the result of significant investment that the garden structures and fencing firm have received from their Polish parent company.
David Coton suggests that there are plenty of gardening jobs that need to be done in November, from why you shouldn't throw away your fallen leaves to how to take care of your vegetable patch.
In October, David Coton is getting the garden prepared for the onset of colder weather but, at the same time, the arrival of spring bulbs in the garden centre is a reminder that you should also now be planning ahead for next year.
At GLEE this year David Coton visited the VegTrug stand to find out how their specially designed space saving planters can encourage us to grow more of our own food without the use of pesticides.
