Clean down and plant up your containers for instant colour and continued interest until 2020 brings whatever 2020 fancies. Read on to find out all you need to know about autumn container gardening.
What Makes a Shed a Security Shed?
Some sheds are expressly designed and marketed as security sheds, while others offer excellent levels of security as part of an all-round high-quality build.
If you want an exceptionally secure shed, some of the features you should look for are a robust structure, a strong lock or padlock fixing, an absence of accessible windows, security bolts and hidden hinges.
This list is by no means exhaustive and different manufacturers frequently develop new ways of ensuring their sheds offer high levels of security.
These are 5 of our favourite market-leading security sheds. Read on to find out why…
Garden Seating Has Moved On
Garden seating has changed immeasurably from the days when most people used to relax outdoors on a pair of rusty, old deckchairs.
Nowadays, there are a whole host of beautifully designed outdoor seats available, suitable for almost any occasion.
Here at Shedstore, we believe that garden seating should be as well-made and stylish as the furniture in our lounges or dining rooms, so we strive to offer our customers the very best outdoor furniture on the market.

The key tasks for an organised, growing, healthy garden for this month are:
1. Water all containers
Plants growing in containers get thirsty. Consider fitting micro irrigation to your pots if you are going away on holiday for a fortnight (only if your neighbours can’t do your watering tasks!) and definitely group pots together in a shadier part of the garden. Even sun lovers will put up with a little bit of shade if it means less stress and lots of water from a handy hosepipe or watering can.
Water the surface of the compost and DO NOT spray over the foliage.
2. Trim conifer hedges
Now is a great time to trim up
Add power to your shed or summer house without an electrician
To make the most out of any shed, workshop, summerhouse or log cabin, you need to have lighting and power.
This does not mean paying the high costs of an electrician laying cables under the lawn and wiring the outdoor building up to the mains. Instead, the easiest and most cost effective choice is to use solar power in garden buildings.
Here we take a look at the amazing solar technology that makes it easy to add power to a shed or other external building without any specialist skills and without increasing electricity bills.
