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
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.

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.
