Its seems its that time of year again when most of us remember we have a garden again. No sooner as we watched the snow melt the crocuses were flowering all down the driveway along with the snowdrops & the Daffs started to ease their way skyward. The helebores in the courtyard have finally beaten the slugs & are looking cheerful. Or maybe the snow made the little perishers retreat underground. I must renew the beer traps.
Now apart from the odd jasmine nudifolium & pulmonaria the only thing flourishing in the garden has been the brambles! where do they come from? Every border seems to have been visited by the bramble seed pixie over the winter. They have seized their opportunity whilst we were busy with Christmas Trading to grow stems some as long as eight feet.
Also due to the pre snow storms the borders are covered in tree debris, We lost a beautiful 80 year old Laburnum which landed on the office & had the tops blown out of a poplar, conifer & ash tree. Anyway all this mayhem & mess reminded me of our great range from Bradleys the Tannery from Shropshire & I treated myself to a great pair of the Leather Gauntlets to help with the clear up.
Bradleys the Tannery do a great range of Gardening Accessories & we feature a wide selection of them in our Outdoors Section. They work using traditional methods and local craftsmen hand making every product in the UK using the finest natural materials and leathers, which are all tanned in-house.
The Gauntlets are in either all leather or Leather & English Linen in a variety of colours. The secateurs sets compliment these perfectly, a sturdy leather holster & a great pair of quality Secateurs with a vintage look. Leather Hats in Pink or Brown to keep the wind & rain at bay in the Garden or out walking.
