GardenSite is always striving to be the best in all aspects of our business and along the way it’s pleasing to see our efforts appreciated. As Nathan James Dodd reports, our latest award is for ‘Stockist Of The Year 2015’.
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.

You might not be familiar with the UK Men's Sheds Association but this is a fast growing organisation that, as David Coton discovered, encourages camaraderie and a sense of achievement among its members.
The Wildlife Aid Foundation recently purchased several animal ornaments from GardenSite and David Coton, one of our partners, thought that this charity carried out such terrific work that we made a charitable donation to assist with the cost.
With high winds increasingly affecting most parts of Britain, 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.
Here in Birmingham, the weather has been as changeable as ever, very warm just before Easter followed by a cold spell only last week. During May the threat of further frost will largely pass and, with spring well under way, Robert Hall is in no doubt that this is going to be a busy month in the garden.
