David Coton was delighted to recently meet with Frank Honald, President and Owner of Henri Studio USA, who had flown in from Chicago to discuss the opportunity of bringing their products back into the UK next year.
Haddonstone have just announced the launch of their impressive Sir John Soane's Museum collection. The new ornaments will replicate works of art from the Sir John Soane's Museum near Holborn in London which contains an astonishing collection of historical artifacts.
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.

However, even though the garden centre is currently closed, we are still trading online and, while you may be confined to home, there are plenty of garden jobs for you to tackle during April. David Coton has these suggestions.
