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.
Presented by Sarah Beeny, Double Your House For Half The Money helps people achieve their property dreams without breaking the bank and at a fraction of the cost of moving. A GardenSite product is once again featured in the programme, this time a lockable container to solve a couple's storage problem.
The episode features Russ and Jen Hunt from Sheffield who want a larger family but don't really have enough space. They can't afford to move into a larger home, so must build an extension to their current house. However, they will still have plenty of belongings that need to be securely stowed away.
The programme offers information on the latest products, technology and up-to-date design, so Sarah suggests using Suncast Plastic Outdoor Storage.
These high volume containers can be padlocked for security and are manufactured using top quality, highly durable, UV stable resin and new blow moulding technology. That's why they are guaranteed for so many years.
Ideal for storing anything from garden tools to cushions, they won't look out of place anywhere in the garden, decorated in a style to replicate wicker and rattan.
There are benches and seats as well as boxes and chests, and the Wicker Deck Box, which has a piston mechanism lid, would look fantastic on a patio or decking area.
Plastic storage solutions, with their durability and long life, are increasingly seen as sound investments, highly practical, attractive and virtually maintenance free.
With autumn approaching, it might be time to consider one for anything that might be left in the garden unprotected from the weather until next year.
Dazzling with colourful interest in the brilliant sunshine, this year's Hampton Court Palace Flower Show will prove to be a tremendous attraction for everyone as it caters for both keen gardeners and families who just what a day out in magnificent surroundings.
After all the dry hot weather that much of the country has experienced over the last few weeks, the lavender in David Coton's garden is at its most colourful and scented, he's cutting the flowerheads to make lavender biscuits or drying them for pot pourri. Here are more jobs you can do in the garden during July.
At this time of the year you'll find a fabulous selection of summer bedding at our Garden Centre in Birmingham. David Coton will be planting the bedding in containers this month to achieve a wonderful display of colour and here are some other jobs to do in the garden in June.
As part of a project designed to sow ideas, grow inspiration and cultivate futures, 300 London schools are growing their own picnic this summer and their reward could be a £500 voucher from GardenSite.
