Revitalise Your Outdoor Space: Spring Gardening Ideas

During the bleak winter months, it’s easy to let your garden become neglected and forlorn – no one wants to pluck weeds in the freezing cold and dark afternoons, myself included. But now that we’re well into February, springtime is finally on the horizon. With the promise of longer days and clearer skies, now is the perfect time to begin transforming your garden into a stunning oasis that blooms with beauty.

Gardening is one of life’s simple pleasures; a way to unwind and escape everything else that is going on for a little while. It comes with so many physical and mental health benefits, as well as the satisfaction of seeing your hard work pay off. As well as this, spring is associated with re-birth and new life, so embrace the changing season and get your gardening aprons on!

If you’re not green-fingered by nature, just take small steps to start with and you’ll have refreshed your garden before you know it. No matter whether you have spacious lawns or a cosy patio, we’re here to help you make the most of your outdoor space. To make the key tasks as easy as possible, all you need is the essential gardening tools for weeding, pruning and planting, as well as a storage basket that comes in handy for holding a multitude of things.

Brighten up your garden ready for the sunny days ahead by planting your favourite flowers to lift your mood whenever you see them. Whatever your level of expertise, there are plants and flowers for everyone to grow, filling flowerbeds and empty spaces with life and vitality – especially when the blooming riot of colour attracts bees and birds to play.

Grouping larger plant pots together gives the appeal of an impressive outdoor feature, ideal for pairing different sizes and colours together. In a rainbow of colours to choose from, our novelty wellington boot planters make a cheerful decoration for a front door or flowerbed – they can even be brought indoors! Full of character, they’re sure to raise a smile from whoever sees them.

Whilst we’re making the most of spring gardening, it’s important to look ahead and be prepared for the summer months, when the weather is warmer and we’re looking to spend more time relaxing outdoors. Treat yourself to some new garden furniture that complements the aesthetic of your garden whilst creating a tranquil and serene space for you to escape to. Outdoor bistro sets are ideal for enjoying alfresco meals or afternoon cocktails, while traditional garden benches are perfect for unwinding with a good book. Introduce an added touch of comfort with our tie-on chair cushions and cotton bench pads, whose colourful designs boast a water-repellent coating and are deep filled with soft fibres.


With such a cosy space to enjoy with friends and family, it’s no surprise that once the sun goes down you’ll want to stay outdoors under the peaceful night sky. Keep things illuminated with our collection of outdoor lights, in a variety of styles to suit every garden. Easily wall mounted to display in your front or back garden, these outdoor lanterns are also an invaluable addition at this time of the year, ready to welcome you home with a warm and welcoming glow.
