Getting ready for spring with Garden Trading

When I was asked by Garden Trading if I'd like to cast my beady eye over their website I didn't need much persuading. 

I've long been a fan of their stylish home and garden products, and they wanted to know what I thought of their outdoor range because *drum roll* they've promised me that spring is on the way! You heard it here first folks!

Right, well here's a couple of my favourites.

I'm all for encouraging wildlife into the garden, and have already set up bird boxes, feeding stations and a log pile but this cute hedgehog house (for cute hedgehogs no doubt) caught my eye. I wonder if it has an en-suite?

This is the sort of thing my brother has been thinking about getting. He wants to install a log burner in the living room, and has already started chopping wood like some urban Grizzly Adams and stacking it against the garage wall. I think this log store would be more practical.  

With our sizeable Wooden Log Store you can continue to enjoy the warmth and homely atmosphere of your open fire, with a perfectly organised supply of logs, kept dry and protected.

Now this is possibly my favourite item on the whole site. This gorgeous potting bench with a zinc top puts mine to shame. Is it not a thing of beauty?  I am wrong to lust after a potting bench? Yes? Okay then...

This retro Belfast Light would look perfect just outside our back door, and would replace the nasty plastic light we have at the moment.

And finally, one of the things on my current garden To Do List is to find a nice bench, and this folding bistro bench fits the bill perfectly. Love the muted colour too.
