It’s a busy time of year behind the scenes and although it is post Christmas the shop is going well. Trade shows are happening – Top Drawer in London in September and the Spring Fair at the NEC in Birmingham (7 miles of carpeting). Much buying of gorgeous new stock is well under way, all will soon arrive in the shop and be available online. Some new, some old favourites back again.

The Garden House is heading to London mid March for the Country Living Spring Fair, 16th – 20th March at the Design Centre, Islington. We are stand MB43 on the mezzanine – please come and see us!

Competition time! Two free tickets to give away to some lucky people if you can answer this question – How many products are on The Garden House website?

Here’s a reminder of a few old favourites that are always popular at this time of year – whether it’s gardening, keeping warm, walking or just coping with this rainy and blustery start to the year and the last thing you need is the wet and mud coming into your house.

Hugrugs have been posted before but they are just SO brilliant that they deserve another mention. The mud and wet really does stop there – on the mat – and does not get trailed into the house by feet and paws. These really work! Machine washable, quick dry, made to last and available in five lovely patterns.

Gardening has started somewhat prematurely and the Garden House has some very handy things –

Kneelo’s – protect your knees with the wonderfully cushioned Kneeling mats and kneepads.


Flexitie – tie up all those stems, shoots and wayward branches with the brilliant, stretchy and durable.


To dig or ‘No-dig’ is not a question but an option and whichever you choose to do the Implementations copper gardening tools are simply the best.

Umbrellas – strong and sturdy -nothing more to say except don’t leave home without one.

If you’re in Bruton do drop in to say hello. Lovely shop, lovely stuff!
