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.
A GardenSite product is once again featured on TV tonight, this time a lockable container to solve a couple's storage problem.
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.
Tonight's 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.
Although the days are short and the view from our Garden Centre is frosty and overcast, Andy Taylor suggests various jobs that can be done in the garden during the month of January.
Showcasing young musical talent, this year's Winter Concert at Arthur Terry School was an outstanding success and took place against the stunning backdrop of a Christmas Tree donated by GardenSite.
It was quite an honour for GardenSite to be asked to supply the Christmas Tree to Birmingham New Street Station this year, and to celebrate we're offering a Champagne High Tea to the winners of a seasonal selfie competition.
With Storm Caroline reeking havoc many people are likely to be contacting their insurance companies at some time regarding damage caused to sheds, greenhouses, fences and other garden property. Robert Hall explains how GardenSite.co.uk can help with an independent insurance quote and claim.
