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.
Palram offer a 'world of outdoor solutions', and David Coton reports that their impressive range of polycarbonate structures, including gazebos and skylight sheds, will soon be available on Gardensite.
Polycarbonate is particularly strong, UV resistant, won't be affected by variations in temperature and is virtually unbreakable. It will not rot, rust or peel and is therefore entirely appropriate for use outdoors.
Palram have 50 years of experience in the manufacture of this highly durable material that is also used for greenhouses, cold frames, sun tunnels and car ports.
There is a selection of four 6ft wide skylight sheds, ranging from 3ft to 10ft in length, plus another that measures 4ft wide and 6ft long.
A unique feature is their skylight roof which has panels that transmit natural light during the day while appearing opaque from the outside. This offers both privacy and peace of mind as there is no need for vulnerable windows.
The cladding is reinforced by an aluminium frame, so will not fracture or bend. There's front and back air vents, an easy access ramp and inside an anti-slip floor. A lockable latch provides extra security.
Palram's Palermo Gazebo is an ideal place in which to entertain or dine under cover with family and friends. You could also be inventive, perhaps placing one over a hot tub and have a thoroughly relaxing time.
Similar to their other structures, the gazebo, that comes in two sizes, is maintenance free, sturdily constructed and can be anchored for extra stability. Clips allow you to fit curtains and other decorations, creating a very stylish addition to your garden.
Palram will certainly complement Gardensite's existing range of plastic sheds and storage solutions, and we very much looking forward to offering their high quality products to our customers.
David Coton suggests that there are plenty of gardening jobs that need to be done in November, from why you shouldn't throw away your fallen leaves to how to take care of your vegetable patch.
In these uncertain times it's reassuring to know that Barlow Tyrie have been designing and manufacturing top quality teak furniture for nearly a century, and they have announced several new ranges to coincide with their one hundredth birthday.
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.
There's no doubt that television provides gardeners with inspiration, sound advice and good ideas, that's why we're all looking forward to new programmes and the return of old favourites during 2019.
