David Coton was recently invited to the exclusive launch of Grange's new products for 2018, the result of significant investment that the garden structures and fencing firm have received from their Polish parent company.
In order to bring our customers the best quality products at the keenest prices, we insist on staying close to our suppliers. That's why David Coton and Nathan James Dodd spent a day recently at Rowlinson, manufacturers of quality timber garden products.
An insistence on high standards and the finest materials has been key to Rowlinson's success and that's why this family business has been trading in timber products for nearly 90 years.
Based in Cheshire, we were shown around their impressive premises where arbours and arches, canopies and gazebos, cabins, summerhouses, sheds, storage and a lot more besides, are assembled by their skilled workforce.
Always striving to keep their offering fresh and relevant, the management team showed how new products are designed and manufactured, and these are now available on GardenSite.
Increasing your storage options are a 4ft x 3ft pressure treated shiplap shed, and a contemporary Wooden Patio Storette that will protect cushions and other accessories from the weather.
Their furniture range includes the seven piece Plumley hardwood dining set that folds for easy storage. Faux rattan furniture is designed for use indoor or outside where you may find a choice of sturdy benches.
Wildlife benefits from a range of premium quality bird tables with either slate or wooden roof panels.
Rowlinson take the environmental responsibilities seriously and we were assured that all their timber comes from well managed FSC accredited forests.
With large stock levels, the availability of Rowlinson products is excellent. They are all supplied with full instructions and the appropriate assembly fixings including any felt and glazing.
Our visit to Rowlinson was thoroughly enjoyable, and GardenSite continues to be proud to sell their superb British made products. See all their range here and read about how we are including the Carmen Pavilion into the Halcyon Days show garden at Gardeners' World Live.
Although the days are short and the view from our Garden Centre is frosty and overcast, Andy Taylor suggests various jobs that can be done in the garden during the month of January.
Showcasing young musical talent, this year's Winter Concert at Arthur Terry School was an outstanding success and took place against the stunning backdrop of a Christmas Tree donated by GardenSite.
It was quite an honour for GardenSite to be asked to supply the Christmas Tree to Birmingham New Street Station this year, and to celebrate we're offering a Champagne High Tea to the winners of a seasonal selfie competition.
With Storm Caroline reeking havoc 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.
