Many of you will have seen the latest episode of the popular ITV series 'Love Your Garden', but did you spot the three items that Robert Hall from GardenSite donated to help transform a Salford garden from wasteland to English cottage garden?
Zest 4 Leisure have always offered a popular range of timber garden furniture and this week at GLEE, the garden industry's leading trade show, David Coton had the opportunity to review their new products for 2018.
As winners of two recent awards, you can be sure that any new offering from Zest 4 Leisure will be high on quality and, making their debut at this year's GLEE, were several products that will feature in their range next year.
Making quite an impact on any garden, you can enjoy this relaxing swinging seat whatever the weather. This is due to the apex roof sheltering you from showers and perspex panels turning it into a windproof haven.
Innovatively designed and expertly crafted like others in the same range, this handsome bench is the ideal place to relax with friends and family. Match with the Emily Coffee Table and you'll create a delightful and very practical set of outdoor furniture.
This lovely seat might be the perfect finishing touch to your garden. As you sit comfort reading a book or just watching the garden grow, you can the scent of honeysuckle or similar climber plant that has been trained along the trellis.
If you enjoy home cooking, gathering fresh herbs from the garden is such a boon. With three tiers, you can locate a good variety of herbs within easy picking distance of the kitchen door. Very handy if you have just a balcony or restricted space, the stand can also be used to display flowering plants.
Container gardening increases in popularity each year, and compact areas can be filled with colour and interest when you use planters as elegant as this one. A stylish shape is augmented by the attractive natural timber appearance, and a pair will be a real eye-catching combination.
I had the chance to see all these products at the NEC and I must say I can't wait to add them to all the others in the impressive Zest 4 Leisure range that we offer on GardenSite.
At GLEE this year David Coton visited the VegTrug stand to find out how their specially designed space saving planters can encourage us to grow more of our own food without the use of pesticides.
Forest have been making high quality timber garden products for over half a century and at GLEE David Coton had the chance to see their brand new storage range that has recently been launched.
Everyone should be serious about encouraging wildlife, and whether you focus on pollinating bees, pest devouring birds or slug eating hedgehogs, David Hall has been looking at the products that Wildlife World design and manufacture to aid their conservation.
