Stone Bird Baths and Sundials make handsome features in any garden, as with their other cast stone ornaments they are an interesting mix of traditional and contemporary styles, all finely crafted and expertly designed
Over the past few years, Citizen Khan, starring Adil Ray, has established itself as a very popular BBC comedy. We were therefore more than happy to supply the production company with a pair of Lion Garden Ornaments to decorate the front entrance of Mr Khan's house.
The comedy series Citizen Khan was first shown in 2012 and received impressive viewing figures, the central figure is a laughably opinionated community leader who naturally wants to make his rather mundane house as grand as possible.
This is taken from the BBC website:- "Citizen Khan is a warm family comedy set in the capital of British Pakistan - Sparkhill, East Birmingham. It follows the trials and tribulations of self-appointed Muslim community leader Mr Khan (Adil Ray) and his long suffering family."
These pair of lions were the obvious choice, as they are made from solid concrete and very durable, you should see a lot of them as the series progresses.
They are not the only lions available on GardenSite, our Gondwana and Etosha lions are named after the Southern Africa game reserves, the Leazes Park Lion was specially commissioned as part of a restoration project and, as an alternative to these fierce guardians, there's a cuddly version - Vivid Arts Sitting Lion Cub
In addition, we have an impressive range of other animals crafted in resin and marble as well as stone. These include other exotic animals, domestic pets and amphibians.
Dogs, puppies, birds and farmyard animals abound and the children will love the meerkat collection with these lovable animals portrayed as several characters.
All the animals will certainly be great conversational subjects. Manufactured from high quality materials they are very hardwearing and can be displayed indoors or outside where they are frost proof and weather resistant.

New products are the lifeblood of many industries and it’s no different in the gardening sector and most of us above a certain age will know the Rubbermaid brand well, particularly if you have ever been in the cleaning industry.
GLEE is the garden retail industry's annual show at the NEC in Birmingham. David Coton took the opportunity to visit this year's event to catch up on the news, visit current/potential suppliers and evaluate new products we would like to offer on GardenSite in the coming year.
I had never heard of Evika Greenhouses but when I walked into our annual Garden & Leisure Exhibition 2019 (GLEE) it was the only product I really saw. A brand new greenhouse brand is always going to get my attention but the sense that this was not only new, but different, kept my focus.
Although the growing season is slowly coming to an end, David Coton can suggest quite a few jobs that need to be done over the next few weeks, helping you make the most of what's left of summer and preparing for the arrival of autumn.
