Garden Accessories

We have a huge array of everything you’ll need to keep your garden and the plants in it healthy and good looking – from watering to weather protection.

Come and take a look round. Whatever the season and whatever the reason we should be able to help you out.

Plant support

Some plants need a helping hand to reach their full height.

In the vegetable garden, where tomatoes, runner beans and some fruits are just a few that need support, you can use something cost-effective and practical. Ornamental plants demand something easier on the eye, and training plants can produce some spectacular effects.
