View Archive Tuesday 11 December 2012


With a wealth of established Gardens here in the UK, we'd be silly to look elsewhere for beautiful Winter scenes now the weather has turned:

In this post, we'll show you how the gardens were looking last week as a blanket of snow hit areas all over the UK:

The frost covered branches here at the RHS Garden in Harlow-Carr glimmer as the light catches on them. This might be a beautiful sight, but what does this mean for your garden furniture? Protection! We have a fantastic range of weather covers suitable for benches and picnic tables, which are perfect for fending off the wet and cold.

The Winter Garden at Dunham Massey, Cheshire is open all year round, just like most of our favourite UK gardens.

If we stop supporting these fantastic resources, then unfortunately the gardens wont survive to be around for generations to come. We all have a responsibility to express our love for these national institutions. 

So if you're looking for a garden to attend this Christmas, then the best place for you to check out all the details is the National Trust's visit page:

If you would like more information about the beautiful gardens and walks in the Henley-in-Arden area, then give us a call or pop us an email! 

Remember that if youre intending on keeping your benches or garden furniture outdoors this winter, you can protect them from the harsh weather with our weather covers available in many sizes.
