Party Night with Forest Garden Products at Hampton Court

Robert Hall was recently invited to the party night at Hampton Court as part of Forest Garden Products demonstration event. There they presented their exciting new gardening products, some of which are available now to purchase on GardenSite and others coming relatively soon ready for the next season.

Enjoying the company with Forest Garden Products at Hampton Court.

If ever you wanted a perfect English summer's evening to hold a garden party, and you wanted the perfect location what could have been better than Monday night at Hampton Court Palace Flower Show. It was a picture perfect scenario with the Palace bathed in the glow of the early July sunshine.

Wimbledon had started and half of London seemed to be out and about and determined to enjoy themselves.

We have just published an overview of what to see at Hampton Court Palace Flower Show but I was invited to the Forest Garden Products stand to join them in celebrating 50 years of being open to the British public with their unique blend of timber based products for your garden.

It all started with the Forest Lap panel that had a heavier frame than the competition at the time, and was consequently more expensive.

The public could see the added value and invested in the panel which was quickly followed by the Forest Lap Trellis.

The range now includes arbours, arches, pergolas, glasshouses, sheds, planters, raised beds and much more.

New Products Await

The Hexagonal Gazebo by Forest GardenA tour of the stand with Group CEO Guy Grainger quickly led us to new Forest Hexagonal Garden Gazebo (pictured above). And if ever you needed a focal point for a party this gazebo fills the brief.

At the heart of the gazebo are the very substantial 150mm uprights and the 125mm cross beams.

Trying to effectively marry these together caused major construction issues until the carpenters came up with a unique steel bracket system that is now patented.

As well as providing a secure joining method it also means that the build time is cut down dramatically, saving everyone time and adding strength and security.

Available in a choice of sizes with three different roof options, and window blinds to cut down the prevailing wind means not only can this gazebo be used on a warm summer’s evening but well into the autumn and even during the colder month when we get those dry winter days with a luke warm sun.

Of course the kids, and the grand children will love it (imagine them sat around the perimeter bench when the cake and candles come out) but so will the adults. When all the excitement has calmed and the adults have some time together it is the perfect seating arrangement for up to 10 comfortably in the 3.5 metre Hexagonal Gazebo.

A room to party; a room to relax; a room to sit and read; or even a outside room to serve the food from the barbecue if rain is in the air. It really is a very social multi-use outdoor room at an affordable price with an SRP of £5,399.00 including installation on a prepared and level base.

There was also a new range of planters to see, some with an experimental castellated top that are tall enough to work on at standing height to save bending down. This also has the advantage of bring the plants closer to you as you walk around the garden and they can also be used as garden dividers.

To keep down excessive noise the new Forest Decibel Panel, or Noise Reduction Panel, was on show which has been proved to cut down noise dramatically in independent tests.

Add in a new boot store for Wellington and other muddy boots alongside some experimental display ladder shelving and some of their best selling products like the Victorian Tall Wall Greenhouse and you have a lot of product packed onto their display stand.

After my party night out I’m back at work for the rest of this week but if you get chance to go to the Hampton Court Palace Flower Show this week I trust the sun will shine on you too.

Robert wishes to especially thank those at Forest Garden for their wonderful hospitality and joins them in wanting to making Britain's gardens great.
