  4. The Best Shed Storage Ideas This Year

    Installing a shed is only part of getting the best from your garden. Making full use of all available space within the shed is of paramount importance. Hooks will keep bulky, unwieldy items off the floor and make use of wall space. Shelving, pegboards for tools and any sets of drawers all help keep gardening items neatly stacked away. Keep hand tools and anything you use on a daily or weekly basis to hand. Less used items can be stored in corners and hard to reach spots. And only store what you use. Don’t let your shed become a dumping ground for rubbish or a museum to old paint pots. Keep it pristine and clean with some of these great shed storage ideas.

    A few of our shed storage ideas...

    Shed Shelving Units

    Our interview with Pro Gardens Ltd

    1. You’re in the finals of the Show Garden competition at BBC Gardeners’ World Live this year, can you give us any insight into what we might expect to see from you on the day?

Everyone has a memory of playing in a garden as a child, the adventures and stories you created within your imagination. When you see, children doing the same thing, you are transported back to that time in your childhood whi

  7. Chelsea Fringe Festival 2017: What you need to know

    Chelsea Fringe Festival 2017: What you need to know

    With this year’s Chelsea Fringe Festival fast approaching, we spoke to Tim Richardson again, festival director of the Chelsea Fringe Festival, to find out a bit more about what we can expect at this year’s festival.

    What to expect at the 2017 Chelsea Fringe Festival

    1. This year’s Chelsea Fringe festival is only a month away, can you give any inside information about what to expect?

    The great thing about the Fringe is that we genuinely don’t know quite what to expect. Every year I am surprised and delighted by what turns up, and every year events come in a form which I was not quite expecting. At the Fringe, we see this as a good thing! So take your pick and dive in….

    2. Do you have any high-profile attendees this year?

    • How to build a garden office

      More people are working from home than ever and many do so from an office in their garden. And why not? It saves all that tiresome commuting and with internet connections generally being better than ever, communication is easy. And if surrounded by plants and wildlife, surely the standard of work is better? A garden office is therefore one of the must have features of a modern garden.

      Obviously, you have to stay legal so always check with your local council to see if any permissions are needed before erecting any building. Have a chat with the neighbours at the same time – get everyone on board and the whole process is easier.

      Choosing an office for the garden is the exciting bit. Whatever you decide upon has to be right for your work and the garden. A building shouldn't dominate a garden design to the detriment of the rest of your patch yet it needs to be large enough to accommodate your needs now and for any future expansion.
