After a long winter indoors, nothing feels better than stepping outside for spring. It’s the season of awakening and new life, brighter days and blooming plants. The season begins in March, so now is the perfect time to assess our gardens to see what needs sorting, refreshing or planting!
Warmer weather coming, we’ve put together a garden wish list to help launch you into the season. From outdoor furniture and centrepieces to plants and essential tools, here are some great ways to ensure you’re ready.
Enjoying your garden
First and foremost, well-designed gardens makes us feel good! They help us connect with nature and the people we love.
Whether you’re taking a breath or enjoying dinner al fresco with family, create a set-up that passes all your vibe checks at our virtual Garden Room. You’ll find stylish decor and lighting, furniture and more. Take, for example, this Folding Double Cocoon Chair from Innovators. This is how we like to bask in the sun!
The gentle sway of the egg chair and the sprung attachments will allow you to truly relax after a few hours on your feet. Or why not start the day in the egg chair with breakfast? Elegantly designed in high-grade aluminium and steel with faux rattan ropework, it boasts plush, removable deep-filled cushions and is designed to sit two people side by side.
Or how about this stunning firepit? Nothing beats that cosy feeling of a real fire, but if you’ve never fancied the hassle of a bonfire, this gas fire pit from Innovators is your answer!
Offering all the beauty of a fire in a clean-burning gas flame, it provides warm, gentle light and a fabulous centrepiece for any of your outdoor events. With its chic, streamlined bowl design, this fire pit is the modern way to enjoy a fire – just light it up and enjoy!
Finding your flowers
No garden is complete without the vibrant colours of spring and summer blooms. Planning ahead is key, but luckily here at QVC we have an abundant selection. Whether you’re hunting for hardy perennials or show-stopping annuals, discover your new favourite variety at our online nursery. Here are just a couple of our darlings!
Better yet, this collection is available on Advanced Order. That means you can bag your begonias early and they’ll be shipped to you in June, all ready to plant.
They love Mediterranean conditions (like us!) so there’s no need to worry if you forget to water them for a while. Their blooms are shatter-proof too, so whatever the English weather throws at them, they’ll perform well.
Your green-fingered arsenal
The best way to prepare? Getting your space in tip-top shape! From powerful lawnmowers and hoses to handy shovels and efficient weedkiller, take the hard work out of your maintenance tasks with our reliable range of plant care and gardening tools.
Some tools can even do it all! Like this versatile four-in-one gardening tool from Yard Force. It can be used as a soil scarifier, reciprocating saw, grass shears and hedge trimmer with its adjustable cutting heads, plus it features a cordless design and a telescopic tube.
There’s no need for a helping hand with this ultimate gardening companion. It’s a do-it-all assistant, easy to use so you can keep your garden prim and proper.
We hope this blog might’ve given you a few ideas. Don’t forget to visit our Garden & Leisure page for all things green and growing, but in the meantime – before we see those blooms and hear the bird songs – good luck with your planning!
