Kitchen Garden - Planning for 2021

The Benefits of having a Boot Room Space in your home
With winter fast approaching, we want you to be able to enjoy any outdoor adventures that you may decide to embark on, without the worry of mud scattered throughout your home.

Autumn Lawn Care
Autumn is an important time of year for taking care of your lawn. The effort you put in during autumn will improve the quality and health of your lawn right through into spring and beyond. Here's some tips on caring for your lawn in autumn from our friends at Rolawn.
Let's talk about pumpkins
For many, Autumn is a season synonymous with pumpkins. Come October, people go wild for the squash, which has become a big part of Halloween and pumpkin carving traditions worldwide. And for those lucky enough to already have their own pumkin patch, now is the time to start harvesting your orange beauties.
