We Love: Metalbird Steel Silhouettes
We love these Metalbird steel silhouettes, which bring a sweet, artistic sense of the wilderness to any garden setting. Now launched in the UK the idea is the brainchild of London-born, New Zealand-raised industrial designer Phil Walters. Hammered into trees, fences or posts the birds will form a layer of rust with their natural patina blending into the landscape.
We Love: Haws Watering Cans
We love these indoor and outdoor watering cans made by local Smethwick-based, family owned company, Haws. The small cans and misters – made of copper, brass, metal or plastic – are perfect for looking after indoor plants. The larger cans – based on the iconic designs of the company founder, John Haws – are easy to carry and tip when caring for your hanging baskets, pots and planters.
We Love: Plant Belles Plant Supports
We love these elegant plant supports, and recommend them for our customers often – particularly those whose gardens have abundant herbaceous perennials, such as peonies and asters. These grow-through structures are named after gardening stars – such as Gertrude, which recalls a wide crinoline of the sort worn by Gertrude Jekyll, and Christopher (in honour of the rotund Christopher Lloyd of Great Dixtor).
